To a President

ALL you are doing and saying is to America dangled
        mirages;
You have not learn’d of Nature—of the politics of
        Nature, you have not learn’d the great ampli–
        tude, rectitude, impartiality;
You have not seen that only such as they are for These
        States,
And that what is less than they, must sooner or later
        lift off from These States.
