A Glimpse Comments

Rating: 3.1

A GLIMPSE, through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room, around the stove,
late of a winter night--And I unremark'd seated in a corner;

...

Walt Whitman

Of a youth who loves me, and whom I love, silently approaching, and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand;

interstice- -an interval of time.. So perhaps Whitman was there as an older man and sees himself as a young man.... that is intriguing!

Beautiful write, yet soul within seems to talk in silence when words become wordless.

An interesting but endearing write. The pub was noisy but two souls was enamored with each other. Good piece.

Ah, this is the right joke - all those people sitting in corners. In pubs. They had nothing on Whitman. He would have sat there all night he would. Plenty of inspiration. And then this other figure...proving he really knows how pubs were in those days. To sit out alone, like that.

Anastasia Walt Whitman is dead. He has been for over hundred years, I personally did not like Walt Whitmans writings except for a few. Like Captain my Captain, and When Lilacs last in the dooryard bloomed. His poetry to me was too conceited and at the time we studied it in the 60s he just did not measure up to the greats.

Only if America was caught up in the beauty of his graphic portrayal of human affection instead of blindly addicted to sending boys (and now girls) to die in war. Men giving young men their hands in compassion instead of rifles and uniforms and human targets. Too bad his dream isn't the American Dream, too bad.
