Walt Whitman - OTHER LANDS.


This moment yearning and thoughtful, sitting alone,
It seems to me there are other men in other lands, yearning and thoughtful;
It seems to me I can look over and behold them in Prussia, Italy, France,
        Spain—or far, far away, in China, or in Russia or India—talking
        other dialects;
And it seems to me, if I could know those men, I should become attached to
        them, as I do to men in my own lands. 60 more words
