Poem Commentary

Whenever I am in need of spiritual comfort and direction I turn to Walt Whitman’s “Leaves Of Grass”, for there is no book that centers me, calms me, and gives me spiritual bearing like this collection of truths, triumphs, and defeats. Where the Bible is a book of fantasies, mythology, and disturbing contradictions, “Leaves Of Grass” is a reality to hold in your heart and soul, to comprehend with out having to be interpreted by anybody but yourself. “Leaves Of Grass” should be nominated to replace the Bible as the book of honorable truths and proper spiritual development. Whitman was The Second Coming.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
