    In 1959, I was stunned by Nevil Shute's novel 'On The Beach.' His view of a post-nuclear world was very frightening in those Cold-War days. Just the other day, I found out that the title is derived from a Whitman poem. I wanted to read the entire poem, so I navigated to this site. I was pleased to find that Whitman (who is buried only a few miles from my home in New Jersey) had a much more optimistic twist to his vision of the beach. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
