Leaves of Grass

Author: Walt Whitman  | Date: 1855

Others May Praise What They Like

OTHERS may praise what they like;

But I, from the banks of the running Missouri, praise nothing in art

or aught else,

Till it has well inhaled the atmosphere of this river, also the

western prairie-scent,

And exudes it all again.
