I make a pact with you, Walt Whitman-
I have detested you long enough.
I come to you as a grown child
Who has had a pig-headed father;
I am old enough now to make friends,
It was you that broke the new wood,
Now is the time for carving.
We have one sap and one root-
Let there be commerce between us.
the father refered to is, of course, Walt Whitman.
