Text heard on Sample:

...I onward go. I stop.
With hinged knees and steady hand to dress wounds,
I am firm with each, the pangs are sharp yet unavoidable,
One turns to me his appealing eyes - poor boy! I never knew you,
Yet I think I could not refuse this moment to die for you, if that would save you...


from The Wound-Dresser by Walt Whitman
