Walt Whitman

(31 May 1819 - 26 March 1892 / New York / United States)

Mother And Babe


I SEE the sleeping babe, nestling the breast of its mother;
The sleeping mother and babe- hush'd, I study them long and long.

    I never knew that Whitman wrote about babe
    He was sensative man.
    He did not have a babe,
    I wish he had an only one! (Report) Reply
