    Interesting, but this poem lacks lyrical qualities that could make it moving and significant. (Report) Reply

    I guess i agree with those three about this poem. In my limited understanding of how to analyze what poetry means, it does seem that all whitman is saying is that even though young women are very attractive, older women have more to offer. Since the older women have more experiences that is probably what whitman is looking at, not neccessarily their looks. (Report) Reply

    i agree with stacy and mallory.. i think that the older women get the more wise and more caring they become. (Report) Reply

    I like the poem because I think it means that with age women become more wise, caring, experience, loving, etc. (Report) Reply

    I think this poem is discussing how older women are more experienced and wiser than younger women. (Report) Reply

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
