“A show of the summer softness—a contact of something unseen—an amour of the light and air”

A show of the summer softness—a contact of something unseen
—an amour of the light and air,
I am jealous and overwhelm’d with friendliness,
And will go gallivant with the light and air myself.

—Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
