Walt Whitman

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

What General Has A Good Army


WHAT General has a good army in himself, has a good army;
He happy in himself, or she happy in herself, is happy,
But I tell you you cannot be happy by others, any more than you can
beget or conceive a child by others.

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
