41. America singing, America dancing

I hear America singing.

I must say,

America's voice is loud;

America's voice is good,

And soul-stirring, too.


I see America dancing.

I must say,

Although America's dance

Wants to illumine the world,

It ends by frightening the world

Not only beyond the world-imagination,

But

Beyond her own loftiest imagination, too.
