Walt Whitman - To a Western Boy.

O BOY of the West! 
To you many things to absorb, I teach, to help you become eleve of mine: 
Yet if blood like mine circle not in your veins; 
If you be not silently selected by lovers, and do not silently select lovers, 
Of what use is it that you seek to become eleve of mine?         5
