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 amplitude, 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.
