Walt Whitman: Poems

Walt Whitman: The City of Friends

I dreamed in a dream I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of

the rest of the earth;

I dreamed that it 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.
