This is all I can give, a #poem, a folly of words….

NO LABOR-SAVING MACHINE.

Whitman, Calamus

NO labor-saving machine,
Nor discovery have I made,
Nor will I be able to leave behind me any wealthy bequest to
         found a hospital or library,
Nor reminiscence of any deed of courage for America,
Nor literary success nor intellect, nor book for the book-shelf,
But a few carols vibrating through the air I leave,
For comrades and lovers.
Well, that’s about all I’m aiming for, too, Walt 🙂
