Walt Whitman is again paying tribute to the beauty of the simplistic characteristics that are overlooked.

I am researching Walt Whitman for a Grade 11 english assignment and i think he is an extremely gifted and talented poet. All of Walt Whitman's poems are about himself, whether they are experiences, feelings, or thoughts. I think that "A Farm-Picture" was a sight that Walt Whitman saw before he wrote the poem. Also, saying "with cattle and horses feeding;
And haze, and vista, and the far horizon, fading away." he is saying that catle and horses dont lead very interesting and important lives. They eat and graze and then they jsut fade away.
