“This Moment Yearning and Thoughtful” – “Leaves of Grass” – Walt Whitman

March 9th, 2011 · No Comments · China, Culture, Ethnicity, Multi-culturalism, Poetry

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 Germany, Italy, France, Spain,
Or far, far away, in China, or in Russia or 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.
