Walt Whitman

Here you will find the Poem To The East And To The West of poet Walt Whitman

To The East And To The West

TO the East and to the West;
 To the man of the Seaside State, and of Pennsylvania,
 To the Kanadian of the North--to the Southerner I love;
 These, with perfect trust, to depict you as myself--the germs are in
 all men;
 I believe the main purport of These States is to found a superb
 friendship, exalté, previously unknown,
 Because I perceive it waits, and has been always waiting, latent in
 all men.
