Text inside book taken from Whitman's poem "Now Lift Me Close":

Now lift me close to your face till I whisper,
What you are holding is in reality no book, nor part
of a book;
It is a man, flush'd and full-blooded—it is I— So long!
—We must separate awhile—Here! take from my lips
this kiss;
Whoever you are, I give it especially to you;
So long! —And I hope we shall meet again.
