I Heard You, Solemn-sweep Pipes Of The Organ

Walt Whitman 1819 (West Hills) – 1892 (Camden)




  I HEARD you, solemn-sweet pipes of the organ, as last Sunday morn I
  pass'd the church;
  Winds of autumn!--as I walk'd the woods at dusk, I heard your long-
  stretch'd sighs, up above, so mournful;
  I heard the perfect Italian tenor, singing at the opera--I heard the
  soprano in the midst of the quartet singing;
  ... Heart of my love!--you too I heard, murmuring low, through one of
  the wrists around my head;
  Heard the pulse of you, when all was still, ringing little bells last
  night under my ear.
