Walt Whitman

Here you will find the Poem Beginners of poet Walt Whitman


HOW they are provided for upon the earth, (appearing at intervals;)
 How dear and dreadful they are to the earth;
 How they inure to themselves as much as to any--What a paradox
 appears their age;
 How people respond to them, yet know them not;
 How there is something relentless in their fate, all times;
 How all times mischoose the objects of their adulation and reward,
 And how the same inexorable price must still be paid for the same
 great purchase.
