Poets to Come.

Part of the cluster INSCRIPTIONS.


POETS to come! orators, singers, musicians to come! Not to-day is to justify me and answer what I am for, But you, a new brood, native, athletic, continental, greater than  
 before known,
Arouse! for you must justify me.
I myself but write one or two indicative words for the future, I but advance a moment only to wheel and hurry back in the  
I am a man who, sauntering along without fully stopping, turns a  
 casual look upon you and then averts his face,
Leaving it to you to prove and define it, Expecting the main things from you.
