  [begin leaf 1 recto] Sanity and ensemble characterise the great master, Innocence and nakedness are resumed, Theories of the special depart as dreams, Nothing happens, or ever has happened, or ever can 
  happen, but the vital laws are enough,
None were or will be hurried—none were or will 
  be retarded;
A vast clear scheme—each learner learning it 
  for himself,
Taking men, women, laws, the earth, and the 
  things of the earth, as they are,
Starting from one'sself, and coming back to one'sself, Looking always toward the poet, . . . looking toward the Seeing all tend eternally toward happiness, What is narrower than gravitation, light, life, of 
  no account,
What is less than the sure formation of density, 
  or the patient upheaving of strata, of no account,
What is less than that which follows the thief, the 
  liar, the glutton, the drunkard, through this life experience, and doubtless afterward,^—that too of no 
What does not satisfy all every each one, and convince all— every each one—that 
  too of no account.—
