What can I give thee back, O liberal
And princely giver, who hast brought the gold
And purple of thine heart, unstained, untold,
And laid them on the outside of the-wall
For such as I to take or leave withal,
In unexpected largesse? am I cold,
Ungrateful, that for these most manifold
High gifts, I render nothing back at all?
Not so; not cold,—but very poor instead.
Ask God who knows. [...]

(elizabeth barrett browning, from sonnets from the portuguese)
we shall see what we shall see, america. kudos to all of the armchair idealists who got up and rocked the vote - here's hoping we're heard.
