O Tan-Faced Prairie Boy

O TAN-FACED prarie boy,
Before you came to camp came many a welcome gift,
Praise and presents came and nourishing food, till at last
     among the recruits,
You came, taciturn, with nothing to give - we but look'd
     on each other,
When lo! more than all the gifts of the world you gave me.

-Whitman
