    Many great details of the universe in this write. Whitmans
    love for nature is evident in this write. Enthralling.

    Whitman has such a wonderful feel and melody - words so well written and composed. But this is perhaps a bit too long for me - the daily reader - perhaps more for students who have time to study the assonance Whitman pulls from thin air. As a browser though I must say the first few stanzas exhausted my time. (Report)Reply

    Under Thee only they harvest- even but a wisp of hay, under thy great
    face, only;
    Harvest the wheat of Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin- every barbed spear,
    under thee;

    Great poet and great the poetic talent. Always feel quiet submissive with the radiation of such uttered words.
