Das Ewig Weibliche - Klimpt - GREAT GERMAN POETRY - GROßE DEUTSCH GEDICHTE - Deutschland und die Ostmark - Germany and Austria - Peter Crawford

With All Thy Gifts

  With all thy gifts America,
  Standing secure, rapidly tending, overlooking the world,
  Power, wealth, extent, vouchsafed to thee—with these and like of
      these vouchsafed to thee,
  What if one gift thou lackest? (the ultimate human problem never solving,)
  The gift of perfect women fit for thee—what if that gift of gifts
      thou lackest?
  The towering feminine of thee? the beauty, health, completion, fit for thee?
  The mothers fit for thee?
