Walt Whitman: I DREAMED IN A DREAM (1860)

I DREAM'D in a dream, I saw a city invincible to the 
         attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth; 
I dream'd that 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.

Walt Whitman (1860)

Such a city would be worth founding.

Erik, don't we all wish our city was like that? Old Walt was pretty cool!
