Walt Whitman: Salut au Monde!, Part 8

Part 8

I see the regions of snow and ice, I see the sharp-eyed Samoiede and the Finn, I see the seal-seeker in his boat poising his lance, I see the Siberian on his slight-built sledge drawn by dogs, I see the porpoise-hunters, I see the whale-crews of the south     Pacific and the north Atlantic, I see the cliffs, glaciers, torrents, valleys, of Switzerland—I     mark the long winters and the isolation.
