Walt Whitman

Here you will find the Poem O Hymen! O Hymenee! of poet Walt Whitman

O Hymen! O Hymenee!

O HYMEN! O hymenee!
 Why do you tantalize me thus?
 O why sting me for a swift moment only?
 Why can you not continue? O why do you now cease?
 Is it because, if you continued beyond the swift moment, you would
 soon certainly kill me?
