    Whitman sings the song of America like no other poet I know the outsized joy and pain, the affinity for common folk and the love of nature and the sheer overwhelming feeling of every sight and sound and industrious noise around him I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear, he wrote Because of this some are tempted to see Whitman as a poet of pure exuberance like a proto hippie or, worse, like a garrulous Hallmark card But Whitman doesn t shy away from pain at all he embraces it l Whitman sings the song of America like no other poet I know the outsized joy and pain, the affinity for common folk and the love of nature and the sheer overwhelming feeling of ever...
