Walt Whitman - Year that Trembled.

YEAR that trembled and reel’d beneath me! 
Your summer wind was warm enough—yet the air I breathed froze me; 
A thick gloom fell through the sunshine and darken’d me; 
Must I change my triumphant songs? said I to myself; 
Must I indeed learn to chant the cold dirges of the baffled?
And sullen hymns of defeat?
