Long, Too Long America

Poem By Walt Whitman

Here is me alone sitting under the stars
looking at the sky and the most beautiful feature my very sweet moon in the darkest night

thinking if my sweet love is thinking of me by now
imagining what if we were here together by this time
what if i get lost in your eyes even if it was for the last time?
i think destiny will take away one of us from the other
i am just so very sad, even have a lot of fears that i cannot keep going without you

feeling sorry that i have never felt the warmth of your body lying next to me
i am feeling sorry for myself for i have never seen myself in white standing in front of you
feeling sorry for not giving you a promise to be there for you till i give up my last breath......

A Clear Midnight

THIS is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,

Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou
lovest best.

A Noiseless Patient Spider

A noiseless, patient spider,
I mark’d, where, on a little promontory, it stood, isolated;
Mark’d how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,
It launch’d forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;

A Child Said, What Is The Grass?

A child said, What is the grass? fetching it to me with full
hands;
How could I answer the child?. . . .I do not know what it
is any more than he.

A Glimpse


A GLIMPSE, through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room, around the stove,
late of a winter night--And I unremark'd seated in a corner;

A Child's Amaze


SILENT and amazed, even when a little boy,
I remember I heard the preacher every Sunday put God in his
statements,
