You low expiring aborigines of the hills of Utah, Oregon, California! 
You dwarf’d Kamtschatkan, Greenlander, Lapp! 
You Austral *****, naked, red, sooty, with protrusive lip, grovelling, seeking your food!

shorts and their plain like
are an angelic nudity,
spirituality with pockets!
A double updraft as you drop from branch to pool! 

Ideal for getting served last
in shops of the temperate zone
they are also ideal for going home, into space,
into time, to farm the mind's Sabine acres

 spirituality—or hold any faith in results,
(But I see the Athletes—and I see the results of the war glorious and
 they again leading to other results;) 
How the great cities appear—How the Democratic masses, turbulent, wilful, as I love
How the whirl, the contest, the wrestle of evil with good, the sounding and resounding,
