"homesteads no. 29" edward burtynsky

How there is something relentless in their fate all times,
How all times mischoose the objects of their adulation and reward,
And how the same inexorable price must still be paid for the same
great purchase.

...

Me imperturbe, standing at ease in Nature...
Finding my occupation, poverty, notoriety, foibles, crimes, less
important than I thought,
Me wherever my life is lived, O to be self-balanced for contingencies,
To confront night, storms, hunger, ridicule, accidents, rebuffs, as
the trees and animals do.
