CROSSING BROOKLYN FERRY BY WALT WHITMAN

in literature •  4 months ago

Flood tide below me!I see you face to face
Clouds of the west sun there half an hour- i see you face to face
Crowds of men and woman attired in the usual costumes
how curious you are to me

On the ferry boats the hundreds and that cross
returning home are more curious to me than you suppose
And you that shall cross from shore to shore years hence
are more to me and more in my meditation than you might
The simple, compact,well-join'd schememyself

disintegrate every one disintegrated yet part of the scheme
The similitudes of the past and those of the future,
The glories strung like beads on my smallest sights and
hearings. on the walk in the streetand
the passage over the river.

THE IMPALPABLE SUSTENANCE OF ME FROM ALL THINGS AT ALL HOURES OF DAY.
