The Sobbing Of The Bells

Rating: 4.9
THE sobbing of the bells, the sudden death-news everywhere,
The slumberers rouse, the rapport of the People,
(Full well they know that message in the darkness,
Full well return, respond within their breasts, their brains, the sad
reverberations,)
The passionate toll and clang--city to city, joining, sounding,
passing,
Those heart-beats of a Nation in the night.

Whitman talks about death and lonliness. He writes about how this lonliness is felt inside of these people's hearts not only there brains.
