Homework Help: English/Poetry

Posted by Amy on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 12:10am.

Walt Whitman -- America

Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear'd, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair'd in the adamant of Time.


Can someone help me with the meaning of this poem? I'm supposed to do a summary/analysis & I'm having a hard time understanding it. Thanks!!
