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

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
