ON the beach, at night,
Stands a child, with her father,
Watching the east, the autumn sky.

Comments about On The Beach At Night by Walt Whitman

    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
