The Nation United_Noiseless patient spider- By Walt Whitman
A NOISELESS, patient spider,
I mark'd where on a little promontory it stood isolated
Mark'd how to explore the vacant vast surrounding
It launch'd forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself
Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them
And you 0 my soul where you stand,
Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them,
Till the bridge you will need be form'd, till the ductile anchor hold,
Till the gossamer thread you fling catch somewhere, 0 my soul.
