Poetry Friday: The Mystic Trumpeter by Walt Whitman

June 3rd, 2016 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: excited
Current Song: Stone by Alessia Cara

Hark! some wild trumpeter - some strange musician,
Hovering unseen in air, vibrates capricious tunes to-night.

I hear thee, trumpeter-listening, alert, I catch thy notes,
Now pouring, whirling like a tempest round me,
Now low, subdued - now in the distance lost.

- the opening lines of The Mystic Trumpeter by Walt Whitman

I had a sleepless night last night (was it the one small square of chocolate? the one beer?) and I wish I could have been lulled by a wild trumpeter in the night...
