Walt Whitman is my favorite poet. He wrote my favorite book, Leaves of Grass. The name of this site, many of the tabs, many of the jumps, are all taken from “Song of Myself”.
Walt Whitman is the reason I want to become a poet.
If people have never read him, they need to. I am such a fan that I can barely talk coherently about him without babbling incessantly.
So.. do yourself a favor. Follow this link and read him. Just do it with an open mind, when you have a moment.
If you don’t feel something… I will be surprised.
