Dinner with Walt - all things Walt Whitman

Happy One Hundred and Ninety Eighth Birthday Mr. Whitman!

A poem from The Great Man himself:

TO OLD AGE.

I SEE in you the estuary that enlarges and spreads itself grandly as
it pours in the great sea.

The earliest image of Whitman at age 29 years. This daguerreotype was made in New Orleans, during Whitman's residence there between February and May 1848, while he worked on the New Orleans Crescent.
