Life

…from the quills of the dead white poets

Walt Whitman (1819 – 1892)

 

Ever the undiscouraged, resolute, struggling soul of man;

(Have former armies fail’d? Then we send fresh armies – and fresh again;)

Ever grappled mystery of all earth’s ages old or new;

Ever the eager eyes, hurrahs, the welcome clapping hands, the loud applause;

Ever the soul dissatisfied, curious, unconvinced at last;

Struggling to-day the same – battling the same.
