“what have you to confide to me?
Look in my face while I snuff the sidle of evening, (Talk honestly, no one else hears you, and I stay only a minute longer.)
Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)
I concentrate toward them that are nigh, I wait on the door-slab. Who has done his day's work? who will soonest be through with his supper?
Who wishes to walk with me? Will you speak before I am gone?” source
