This Moment, Yearning and Thoughtful

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.

This Moment, Yearning and Thoughtful.

THIS moment yearning and thoughtful, sitting alone, It seems to me there are other men in other lands,  
 yearning and thoughtful;
It seems to me I can look over and behold them, in  
 Prussia, Italy, France, Spain—or far, far away,  
 in China, or in Russia or India—talking other  
And it seems to me if I could know those men, I  
 should become attached to them, as I do to men  
 in my own lands;
O I know we should be brethren and lovers, I know I should be happy with them.
