“Shine! shine! shine!
Pour down your warmth, great sun!
While we bask, we two together.
Winds blow south, or winds blow north,
Day come white, or night come black,,
Home, or rivers and mountains from home,
Singing all time, minding no time,
While we two keep together.”
-Walt Whitman (1819-1892), from “Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking”
