This template takes up to two optional parameters which will alter the page name used to link to Wikisource.

{{Wikisource|1=Leaves_of_Grass/Book_XVII#To You|2=name for Leaves of Grass To You}}


Limitation [] - square brackets

{{Wikisource|1=Leaves_of_Grass/Book_XVII#Year of Meteors [1859-60]|2=name for Leaves of Grass Year of Meteors [1859-60]}}


To resolve this use [ and ] : {{Wikisource|1=Leaves_of_Grass/Book_XVII#Year of Meteors [1859-60]|2=name for Leaves of Grass Year of Meteors [1859-60]}}
