Walt Whitman Quote

As I have walked in Alabama my morning walk,
I have seen where the she-bird the mocking bird sat on her nest in the briers hatching her brood.
I have seen the he-bird also,
I have paused to hear him near at hand inflating his throat and joyfully singing.


Starting from Paumanok, in Leaves of Grass, 1881
