Out of the rolling ocean the crowd

"Out of the rolling ocean the crowd came a drop gently to me,
Whispering, I love you, before long I die,
I have travell’d a long way merely to look on you to touch you,
For I could not die till I once look’d on you,
For I fear’d I might afterward lose you..."
-- Walt Whitman

Truly sublime, what an amazing mood..a single drop of water...touched me.
I love it...

Isn't it amazing though? It was like magic when I found it, mirroring so exquisitely my feelings at the time of discovery. I still love it.
