Walt Whitman Once Said To Me - Poem by doug bentley

walt whitman* once said to me
in a rare moment of perplexity

'now that my
inner eye

is awakened to glow serene
shining in radiant wafers

within and without,
gladdening presence

heart, and ghostly

golden shaft sheds glory
all around

i'm not so sure

That is telling me the Truth
the whole, and nothing but.'

sane sense
i iterated

with some degree
of alacrity

*Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)
