Leaves of Grass (1881-82)

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.
