Walt Whitman - This Moment, Yearning and Thoughtful.

THIS moment yearning and thoughtful, sitting alone, 
It seems to me there are other men in other lands, yearning and thoughtful; 
It seems to me I can look over and behold them, in Germany, Italy, France, Spain—or far,
    far
	away,
	in China, or in Russia or India—talking other dialects; 
And it seems to me if I could know those men, I should become attached to them, as I do to
    men
	in my
	own lands; 
O I know we should be brethren and lovers,
I know I should be happy with them.
