Walt Whitman - Reconciliation.

WORD over all, beautiful as the sky! 
Beautiful that war, and all its deeds of carnage, must in time be utterly lost; 
That the hands of the sisters Death and Night, incessantly softly wash again, and ever
    again,
	this
	soil’d world: 
... For my enemy is dead—a man divine as myself is dead; 
I look where he lies, white-faced and still, in the coffin—I draw near;
I bend down, and touch lightly with my lips the white face in the coffin.
