Walt Whitman - Once I Pass'd Through a Populous City.

ONCE I pass'd through a populous city, imprinting my brain, for future use, with its
	shows, architecture, customs, and traditions; 
Yet now, of all that city, I remember only a woman I casually met there, who detain'd me
	for love of me; 
Day by day and night by night we were together,--All else has long been forgotten by me; 
I remember, I say, only that woman who passionately clung to me; 
Again we wander--we love--we separate again;
Again she holds me by the hand--I must not go! 
I see her close beside me, with silent lips, sad and tremulous.
