    Whitman states that he does not know why miracles happen, but he sees everything in life as a miracle. This is an interesting view of life as most people take everyday things for granted. Whitman sees these things as miracles everyday. (Report) Reply

    'Miracles' shows and appreciation for all things in life. Whether large or small or such and such. Basically Whitman is showing a great deal of love for all things living, dead, or inanimate. He appreciates other people, animals, little things like just seeing a bird fly bye. He seems to be high on life. (Report) Reply

    In this poem, Whitman realizes the importance of everything. A lot of times, the small things are taken for granted, but he is sending out the message that everything is just as important as the next. Even the things that no one thinks about regularly. (Report) Reply
