NUMBER:7403
AUTHOR:Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
QUOTATION:          O Banner!
Not houses of peace are you, nor any nor all of their prosperity; if need be you shall have every one of those houses to destroy them;
You thought not to destroy those valuable houses, standing fast, full of comfort, built with money;
May they stand fast then? Not an hour, unless you, above them and all, stand fast.
ATTRIBUTION:Drum-Taps. Song of the Banner at Daybreak.
WORKS:Walt Whitman Collection.
