(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

*Walt Whitman the haiku poet


some dream
on the deck you've fallen
cold and dead

with mournful tread
I walk the deck
my Captain lies

the steady keel
the vessel grim and daring
the bleeding drops of red

for you bouquets and
ribboned wreaths
the shores a-crowding

the port is near
the bells I hear
the people all exulting

from fearful trip
the victor ship
comes in

poet Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
