Walt Whitman - Facing West from California’s Shores.

FACING west, from California’s shores, 
Inquiring, tireless, seeking what is yet unfound, 
I, a child, very old, over waves, towards the house of maternity, the land of migrations,
	look afar, 
Look off the shores of my Western Sea—the circle almost circled; 
For, starting westward from Hindustan, from the vales of Kashmere,
From Asia—from the north—from the God, the sage, and the hero, 
From the south—from the flowery peninsulas, and the spice islands; 
Long having wander’d since—round the earth having wander’d, 
Now I face home again—very pleas’d and joyous; 
(But where is what I started for, so long ago?
And why is it yet unfound?)
