This Moment, Yearning And Thoughtful
by Walt Whitman

THIS moment yearning and thoughtful, sitting alone,
It seems to me there are other men in other lands, yearning and
It seems to me I can look over and behold them, in Germany, 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;
O I know we should be brethren and lovers,
I know I should be happy with them.
