A Farm-Picture Poem by Walt Whitman

A Farm-Picture

Rating: 3.2

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.

In his simplicity...Whitman manages to create a vivid landscape, alive with scents and atmosphere...a brilliance underestimated!

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

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.
