Poem by Walt Whitman


Leaves of Grass. 34. Sands at Seventy. 7. A Font of Type


This latent minethese unlaunch'd voicespassionate powers,
Wrath, argument, or praise, or comic leer, or prayer devout,
(Not nonpareil, brevier, bourgeois, long primer merely,)
These ocean waves arousable to fury and to death,
Or sooth'd to ease and sheeny sun and sleep,
Within the pallid slivers slumbering.
