I do not ask any more delight....

I have perceived that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them or touch any one,
or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a moment-
what is this, then?
I do not ask any more delight -
I swim in it as in a sea.
-Walt Whitman
