Walt Whitman

(31 May 1819 - 26 March 1892 / New York / United States)

A Farm-Picture - Poem by Walt Whitman


THROUGH the ample open door of the peaceful country barn,
A sun-lit pasture field, with cattle and horses feeding;
And haze, and vista, and the far horizon, fading away.

    This isn't a poem but a beautiful painting
    I can feel the sun warm on my furrowed brow
    And hear the cows moo and sheep so bleating
    In short words Walt Witman puts on such a splendid show......

    In his simplicity...Whitman manages to create a vivid landscape, alive with scents and atmosphere...a brilliance underestimated! (Report) Reply
