Among the mountains I wandered and saw blue haze and
     red crag and was amazed;

On the beach where the long push under the endless tide
     maneuvers I stood silent;

Under the stars on the prairie watching the Dipper slant
     over the horizon’s grass I was full of thoughts.

Great men pageants of war and labor soldiers and
     workers mothers lifting their children these all I
     touched and felt the solemn thrill of them.

And then one day I got a true look at the Poor millions
of the Poor patient and toiling more patient than
crags tides and stars innumerable patient as the
darkness of night and all broken humble ruins of
nations.
