Walt Whitman Poems

  • Chanson Au Coucher Du Soleil
    Splendeur du jour terminé, flottant et me remplissant!
    Heure prophétique-heure reprenant le passé!
    Gonfler ma gorge-vous, divin moyen!
    Toi, Terre et Vie, jusqu'à ce que le dernier rayon brille, je chante. ...
  • Lied Bei Sonnenuntergang
    Pracht des beendeten Tages, schwebend und füllend mich!
    Stunde prophetische Stunde, die die Vergangenheit wieder aufnimmt!
    Aufblasen meiner Kehle - du, göttlicher Durchschnitt!
    Du, Erde und Leben, bis der letzte Strahl schimmert, singe ich. ...
  • Canción Al Atardecer
    ¡Esplendor del día terminado, flotando y llenándome!
    ¡Hora profética, reanudando el pasado!
    ¡Inflando mi garganta, tú, divino promedio!
    Tú, Tierra y Vida, hasta que brille el último rayo, canto. ...
  • Je M'assois Et Regarde
    Je m'assois et regarde tous les chagrins du monde, et tous
    oppression et honte;
    J'entends des sanglots convulsifs secrets de jeunes hommes, angoissés par
    eux-mêmes, plein de remords après les actes accomplis; ...
  • Ich Sitze Und Schaue Hinaus
    Ich sitze und schaue auf alle Sorgen der Welt und auf alle
    Unterdrückung und Scham;
    Ich höre heimliche krampfhafte Schluchzer von jungen Männern, die Angst haben
    selbst, reuig nach Taten getan; ...

Walt Whitman Quotes

  • And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheefully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait... And as to you, Life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths, (No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before.)
  • Answer That you are here---that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.
  • Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch.
  • Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons. It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
  • I celebrate myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

Poem of the day

William Butler Yeats Poem
The Ballad Of Father O'Hart
 by William Butler Yeats

GOOD Father John O'Hart
In penal days rode out
To a Shoneen who had free lands
And his own snipe and trout.
In trust took he John's lands;
Sleiveens were all his race;
And he gave them as dowers to his daughters.
And they married beyond their place.
