Analysis and comments on What think You I take my Pen in Hand? by Walt Whitman

Comment 1 of 1, added on April 16th, 2007 at 8:35 AM.

i beleive in all honesty that this poem is not very clear in its purpose
and shows a definant under appreciation for real life events and how they
effect society. I am not a poetry buff though i do understand that this
poem has been a waste of my time and effort to read.
