i think this poem is mainly talking about regrets. seeing someone on the
street, maybe you know them slightly.. if you wish to talk to them, whats
holding you back? this poem really makes me think about why i do the things
i do to certain people.. or maybe this is meant to cater to everyone's
current situation.. its a poem that everyoen can relate to in one way or
another.

it's beautiful

i think that this is a beautiful poem, with a lot of good things, it
describes how he described the people.

this is a strange poem, not one of my favorites, but still a good poem
because i like the meaning behind it. that we need to get out there explore
the world and meet new people, for all we know we have a best friend or our
true love, we just might not have met them yet.

I believe that what Mr. Whitman is talking about in this poem is EQUALITY.
Maybe he was trying to say: "Hey! you don't have to be afraid of aproaching
me, and just because I'm one of the greatest poets of all time it doesn't
mean that I will reject someone who truly wants to meet/know me".
That's what I think.

i think that we have to speak ourselves up first, and then we can speak
with another, even with a smile or look, we can communicate our feelings,
if we learn not to disparage any smile, then we can speak with an
stranger...
