Walt Whitman: Salut au Monde!, Part 13

Part 13

My spirit has pass'd in compassion and determination around the whole earth, I have look'd for equals and lovers and found them ready for me in     all lands, I think some divine rapport has equalized me with them.
You vapors, I think I have risen with you, moved away to distant     continents, and fallen down there, for reasons, I think I have blown with you you winds; You waters I have finger'd every shore with you, I have run through what any river or strait of the globe has run through, I have taken my stand on the bases of peninsulas and on the high     embedded rocks, to cry thence:
What cities the light or warmth penetrates I penetrate those cities myself, All islands to which birds wing their way I wing my way myself.
Toward you all, in America's name, I raise high the perpendicular hand, I make the signal, To remain after me in sight forever, For all the haunts and homes of men.
