Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

298. In the New Garden in all the Parts


IN the new garden, in all the parts, 
In cities now, modern, I wander, 
Though the second or third result, or still further, primitive yet, 
Days, places, indifferent—though various, the same, 
Time, Paradise, the Mannahatta, the prairies, finding me unchanged,         5
Death indifferent—Is it that I lived long since? Was I buried very long ago? 
For all that, I may now be watching you here, this moment; 
For the future, with determined will, I seek—the woman of the future, 
You, born years, centuries after me, I seek.
