A Leaf for hand in hand!
    You natural persons old and young!
    You on the Mississippi, and on all the branches and bayous of the
         Mississippi!
    You friendly boatmen and mechanics! You roughs!
    You twain! And all processions moving along the streets!
    I wish to infuse myself among you till I see it common for you to
         walk hand in hand!

Leaves of Grass 1891
