~ Happy 194th Birthday to Walt Whitman ~
I started thinking about Whitman’s birthday last week and pondered what I would write in tribute to this remarkable man. Unsure, I picked up my favorite copy of Leaves of Grass, one of 26 copies in my collection, and here’s what I found when I randomly opened the book.
The poem, FULL OF LIFE, NOW is most befitting to share on Whitman’s birthday. Traditionally, we give gifts to loved ones to celebrate a birthday, but today on this occasion, we receive a gift – a timeless gift from Whitman himself to all of us – living, dead and yet unborn…
Happy Birthday Walt!
