President Jimmy CarterCarter, Carter, you are your vision’s start.
You are your beauty’s mind and duty’s heart.
Your power-light has smashed the ignorance-dart.
In you, the country’s promise-soul,
With you, its great perfection-goal.
Your surprise-gift: your oneness-role.
Your golden boat is sailing at lightning-speed;
The smiles and tears of the world your heart shall feed.
In you, at last fulfilled your nation’s need.
