Beginning My Studies

I believe this is Whitman explaining that moment in life when everything is
new...maybe very young adolescence - when we are all students of the world.
When everything amazes us...awes us. When I'm observing my 3 year old niece
and how easily (yet very happily) amazed and awe she gets when learning
something new, I am reminded of this poem. It's that time when happiness is
staring at an ant on a flower and wondering what its doing.

Whitman is obviously estatic about an eye-opening event, a time in his
life, (probably) when he discovered the beautyand majesty in and of LIFE

I loved this poem! It expresses the love he had for his studies because I
believe he realized studying moves you forward and makes you knowledgeable
and encourages you to love studying and not be forced to do it!
