i think the poem is about longing to be with similar people. the live-oak
is exemplary because despite its loneliness it still stands strong
continuing to grow through the ages. whitman is saying, he couldn't be
alone. he wouldn't be satisfied with loneliness. it's the human condition.
i think the poem is beautiful, and valid today as much as it was valid in
the 19th century when he wrote it.
