Walt Whitman: Savantism


Thither as I look I see each result and glory retracing itself and     nestling close, always obligated, Thither hours, months, years—thither trades, compacts,     establishments, even the most minute, Thither every-day life, speech, utensils, politics, persons, estates; Thither we also, I with my leaves and songs, trustful, admirant, As a father to his father going takes his children along with him.
