    This makes me feel sorry for Walt cause of his mothers death, but yet its good becasue he's still remembering her, and was very descriptive about how beautiful she really was and it's a kind thing to say. (Report) Reply

    You would think that this poem would have a sad feeling to it because it is talking about death, but to me, it actually has a kind of peaceful feeling. He goes into detail about his mother and her lovely face and motherly actions. I feel that this is actually a very sweet poem about Whitman's mother. (Report) Reply

    I liked this poem because he talks about his mom being dead, but he still hasn’t forgotten her and he talks about his memories, and he writes this poem to honor her after her death. (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn

A smile of joy since I was born
