Walt Whitman

(31 May 1819 - 26 March 1892 / New York / United States)

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.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
