ROOSEVELT, by                
First Line: He came out the void
Last Line: Asleep.
Subject(s): Presidents, United States; Roosevelt, Theodore (1858-1919)

HE came out the void
Buoyed upon the surging tides.
He braved the West,
Defied the wide frontiers;
He trekked the continents
And enthroned his name
Among the white, the black, the brown, the yellow men.
He trod the frond,
Fording the darkened streams
That glide through jungles
To the tropic sea.
He spanned the globe,
He swept the skies,
And moved beneath the eaters of the deep.
He entered all the portals of the world.
A vibrant, thrilled, exhaustless, restless soul;
Riding at last the very stars --
