Walt Whitman

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

Other May Praise What They Like



OTHERS may praise what they like;
But I, from the banks of the running Missouri, praise nothing, in

Till it has well inhaled the atmosphere of this river--also the
western prairie-scent,
And fully exudes it again.

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
