Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

63. A Leaf for Hand in Hand

A LEAF for hand in hand! 
You natural persons old and young! 
You on the Mississippi, and on all the branches and bayous of the Mississippi! 
You friendly boatmen and mechanics! You roughs! 
You twain! And all processions moving along the streets!         5
I wish to infuse myself among you till I see it common for you to walk hand in hand!
