Walt Whitman - On Journeys Through The States.

ON journeys through the States we start, 
(Ay, through the world—urged by these songs, 
Sailing henceforth to every land—to every sea;) 
We, willing learners of all, teachers of all, and lovers of all. 
  
We have watch’d the seasons dispensing themselves, and passing on,
We have said, Why should not a man or woman do as much as the seasons, and effuse as much?
    
  
We dwell a while in every city and town; 
We pass through Kanada, the north-east, the vast valley of the Mississippi, and the
    Southern
	States; 
We confer on equal terms with each of The States, 
We make trial of ourselves, and invite men and women to hear;
We say to ourselves, Remember, fear not, be candid, promulge the body and the Soul; 
Dwell a while and pass on—Be copious, temperate, chaste, magnetic, 
And what you effuse may then return as the seasons return, 
And may be just as much as the seasons.
