What do you seek, so pensive and silent? What do you need, Camerado? Dear son! do you think it is love?

Listen, dear son--listen, America, daughter or son! It is a painful thing to love a man or woman to excess--and yet it satisfies--it is great; But there is something else very great--it makes the whole coincide; It, magnificent, beyond materials, with continuous hands, sweeps and provides for all.
