My Picture-Callery

Poem By Walt Whitman

IN a little house keep I pictures suspended, it is not a fix'd house,
It is round, it is only a few inches from one side to the other;
Yet behold, it has room for all the shows of the world, all memories?
Here the tableaus of life, and here the groupings of death;
Here, do you know this? this is cicerone himself,
With finger rais'd he points to the prodigal pictures.

House holds the memories in his thoughts.
The round house that holds pictures of memories and scenes could only be his head.
