A Farm-Picture


THROUGH the ample open door of the peaceful country barn,
A sun-lit pasture field, with cattle and horses feeding;
And haze, and vista, and the far horizon, fading away.

    Beautiful and serene, Whitman has always been able to capture imagery with the vivid use of description. He is able to take you to places, revealing a warmth and a sadness.

    For a change Walt holds himself to brevity. And what an invitation by the bard! Not just any open barn door but an ample one! -GK

    This isn't a poem but a beautiful painting
    I can feel the sun warm on my furrowed brow
    And hear the cows moo and sheep so bleating
    In short words Walt Witman puts on such a splendid show......

    I welcome all to my page for your valuable comments please

    Very picturesque as well as tragic (the fading away of such lovely scene) .
