I Dream’ed in a Dream
by Walt Whitman

I Dream’ed 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.
