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

Charles Kingsley Poem
The Mango-Tree
 by Charles Kingsley

He wiled me through the furzy croft;
He wiled me down the sandy lane.
He told his boy's love, soft and oft,
Until I told him mine again.

We married, and we sailed the main;
A soldier, and a soldier's wife.
We marched through many a burning plain;
