America by Walt Whitman
by Walt Whitman
1819-1892 Centre of equal daughters, equal sons, All, all alike endear'd, grown, ungrown, young or old, Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich, Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love, A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother, Chair'd in the adamant of Time.
My Take on this: I personally think this poem is a load of wishful thinking, especially during those days, he didnt even live during a time where all men and women were equal, only words on some Hemp paper that was really just a play on words to begin with. Land of the FREE, nah, Land of the FREE MASON. Hell over half Whitmans life, SLAVES were still around, women had no rights. So IDK i just think there is more to this then those few words
