Walt Whitman - I Dream’d in a Dream.

I DREAM’D in a dream, I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of
    the
	earth;
	
I dream’d that was the new City of Friends; 
Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love—it led the rest; 
It was seen every hour in the actions of the men of that city, 
And in all their looks and words.         5
