Grand is the Seen . . .


“Grand is the Seen
Grand is the seen, the light, to me –
– grand are the sky and stars,
Grand is the earth, and grand are lasting time and space,
And grand their laws, so multiform, puzzling, evolutionary;

But grander far the unseen soul of me,
comprehending, endowing all those,
Lighting the light, the sky and stars,
delving the earth, sailing the sea, …
More evolutionary, vast, puzzling, O my soul!
More multiform far — more lasting thou than they.”

~Walt Whitman
