Walt Whitman

A Clear Midnight

Walter "Walt" Whitman was an American poet, essayist and journalist.






THIS is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
  Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
  Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou
  lovest best.
  Night, sleep, and the stars.
