Walt Whitman Wednesday: “Sometimes With One I Love”

Sometimes with one I love I fill myself with rage for fear I effuse unreturn’d love,
But now I think there is no unreturn’d love, the pay is certain one way or another,
(I loved a certain person ardently and my love was not return’d,
Yet out of that I have written these songs.

—Walt Whitman, “Sometimes With One I Love,” Leaves of Grass
