Poetry Friday: There was a child went forth every day

July 8th, 2011 (07:15 am)

Current Mood: happy
Current Song: SYTYCD

There was a child went forth every day;
And the first object he look'd upon, that object he became;
And that object became part of him for the day, or a certain part of the day, or for many years, or stretching cycles of years.

This is the first stanza of a poem by Walt Whitman. Click here to read the full piece.
