This Moment Yearning And Thoughtful

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 Japan, 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.

- Walt Whitman
