from Leaves of Grass Book XX - by Walt Whitman.

  Of ownership—as if one fit to own things could not at pleasure enter
      upon all, and incorporate them into himself or herself;
  Of vista—suppose some sight in arriere through the formative chaos,
      presuming the growth, fulness, life, now attain’d on the journey,
  (But I see the road continued, and the journey ever continued;)
  Of what was once lacking on earth, and in due time has become
      supplied—and of what will yet be supplied,
  Because all I see and know I believe to have its main purport in
      what will yet be supplied.
