Walt Whitman - Recorders Ages Hence.

RECORDERS ages hence! 
Come, I will take you down underneath this impassive exterior—I will tell you what to
    say
	of
	me; 
Publish my name and hang up my picture as that of the tenderest lover, 
The friend, the lover’s portrait, of whom his friend, his lover, was fondest, 
Who was not proud of his songs, but of the measureless ocean of love within him—and
    freely
	pour’d it forth,
Who often walk’d lonesome walks, thinking of his dear friends, his lovers, 
Who pensive, away from one he lov’d, often lay sleepless and dissatisfied at night, 
Who knew too well the sick, sick dread lest the one he lov’d might secretly be
    indifferent
	to
	him, 
Whose happiest days were far away, through fields, in woods, on hills, he and another,
	wandering
	hand in hand, they twain, apart from other men, 
Who oft as he saunter’d the streets, curv’d with his arm the shoulder of his
	friend—while the arm of his friend rested upon him also.
