I saw in Louisiana a Live Oak Growing

  1. I saw in Louisiana a live-oak growing, Walt Whitman, The Good Grey Poet
  2. All alone stood it, and the moss hung down from the branches;
  3. Without any companion it grew there, uttering joyous leaves of dark green,
  4. And its look, rude, unbending, lusty, made me think of myself;
  5. But I wonder’d how it could utter joyous leaves, standing alone there, without its friend, its lover near—for I knew I could not;
  6. And I broke off a twig with a certain number of leaves upon it, and twined around it a little moss,
  7. And brought it away—and I have placed it in sight in my room;
  8. It is not needed to remind me as of my own dear friends,
  9. (For I believe lately I think of little else than of them;)
  10. Yet it remains to me a curious token—it makes me think of manly love;
  11. For all that, and though the live-oak glistens there in Louisiana, solitary, in a wide flat space,
  12. Uttering joyous leaves all its life, without a friend, a lover, near,
  13. I know very well I could not.
