    Here is the grand 'symphony' of all people of America, each in his occupation, each reflecting the breadth and power of the people of this great country.

    This poem is absolutely inspirational. After reading this poem it made me rethink about how i take granted of things. Just yesterday i didn't even use protection while intercourse with my wife. If i had used protection, who knows how good of a life i would have today? Thank you Walt Whitman for writing and crafting this amazing poem. (Report) Reply
