A Song

Rating: 3.0

COME, I will make the continent indissoluble;
I will make the most splendid race the sun ever yet shone upon;
I will make divine magnetic lands,
With the love of comrades,
With the life-long love of comrades.


I will plant companionship thick as trees along all the rivers of
America, and along the shores of the great lakes, and all over
the prairies;

will plant companionship thick as trees along all the rivers of America, and along the shores of the great lakes, and all over the prairies; I will make inseparable cities, with their arms about each other's necks; By the love of comrades, By the manly love of comrades.

I like the first paragraph and then get lost. The later words with their evident dissonance help the poem along. I do not like this poem at all and would not care if I ever read it again, but you cant argue with the greats, and Walt Whitman deserves to be among them.

I like Carlos's statement WHITMAN'S ROMANTICISM INTOXICATED THIS POEM. That sums up both the content and the style. Although I list Whitman as probably my favorite American poet and re-read favorite poems every year, I have never read a biography, so I do not know the details of his life. Am I afraid that what I would read would alter my view of his poems? Perhaps. I don't know. What I do know is that in his most inspired moments Whitman's imaginative flight inspires my imagination to F-L-Y. Other poets seem to be earth-bound. Like Rilke, my absolute favorite poet, who goes deep within - the earth, the psyche, art and literature, the mysteries of life. I believe Whitman lived most of his life, perhaps all of it, in a condition of personal innocence. There is a purity about his voice and persona that I do not want compromised. And as my life winds down, as it inevitably must, Whitman will be there with his last poems, celebrating death itself as a final voyage of discovery. Who knows for sure - but that may the threshold into true flight - as always Whitman makes us feel wonder, hope, blessedness.
