The second time I see him

A vast similitude interlocks all...
All distances of place however wide, All distances of time, all inanimate forms,
All souls, all living bodies though they be ever so different, or in different worlds,
All gaseous, watery, vegetable, mineral processes, the fishes, the brutes...
All lives and deaths, all of the past, present, future...
Walt Whitman,On the Beach at Night Alone, 1871 (extract)
