EARTH! MY LIKENESS!

Earth! my likeness!
Though you look so impassive, ample and spheric there,
I now suspect that is not all;
I now suspect there is something fierce in you, eligible to burst forth;
For an athlete is enamour’d of me–and I of him;
But toward him there is something fierce and terrible in me, eligible to burst forth,
I dare not tell it in words — not even in these songs.

Walt Whitman
