Germs By Walt Whitman

Germs

FORMS, qualities, lives, humanity, language, thoughts,
The ones known, and the ones unknown–the ones on the stars,
The stars themselves, some shaped, others unshaped,
Wonders as of those countries–the soil, trees, cities, inhabitants,
whatever they may be,
Splendid suns, the moons and rings, the countless combinations and
effects;
Such-like, and as good as such-like, visible here or anywhere, stand
provided for in a handful of space, which I extend my arm and
half enclose with my hand;
That contains the start of each and all–the virtue, the germs of
all.
