    The Congressional Library

    The earth is a colored thing.
    See the red clays, and the umbers and salt greasy of the mountains;
    See the clustered and wandering greens of plains and hillsides,
    The leaf-greens, bush-greens, water-plant and snow-greens
    Of gardens and forests.
    See the reds of flowers—hibiscus, poppy, geranium;
    The rose-red of little flowers—may-flowers, primroses;
    The harlequin shades of sweet-peas, orchids, pansies;
    The madders, saffrons, chromes, of still waters,
    The silver and star-blues, the wine-blues of seas and oceans.
    Observe the stars at nighttime, name the color of them;
    Count and recount the hues of clouds at sunset and at dawn.
    And the colors of the races of men—
    What are they?
    And what are we?
    We, the people without a race,
    Without a language;
    Of all races, and of none;
    Of all tongues, and one imposed;
    Of all traditions and all pasts,
    With no tradition and no past.
    A patchwork and an altar-piece,
    Vague as sea-mist,
    Myriad as forest-trees,
    Living into a present,
    Building a future.
    Our color is the vari-colored world.
    No colors clash,
    All clash and change,
    And, in changing, new colors come and go and dominate and remain,
    And no one shall say which remain,
    Since those that have vanished return,
    And those no man has seen take the light and are.

    Where else in all America are we so symbolized
    As in this hall?
    White columns polished like glass,
    A dome and a dome,
    A balcony and a balcony,
    Stairs and the balustrades to them,
    Yellow marble and red slabs of it,
    All mounting, spearing, flying into color.
    Color round the dome and up to it,
    Color curving, kite-flying, to the second dome,
    Light, dropping, pitching down upon the color,
    Arrow-falling upon the glass-bright pillars,
    Mingled colors spinning into a shape of white pillars,
    Fusing, cooling, into balanced shafts of shrill and interthronging light.
    This is America,
    This vast, confused beauty,
    This staring, restless speed of loveliness,
    Mighty, overwhelming, crude, of all forms,
    Making grandeur out of profusion,
    Afraid of no incongruities,
    Sublime in its audacity,
    Bizarre breaker of moulds,
    Laughing with strength,
    Charging down on the past,
    Glorious and conquering,
    Destroyer, builder,
    Invincible pith and marrow of the world,
    An old world remaking,
    Whirling into the no-world of all-colored light. read more »
