Adieu to a soldier is the dream of a man whos heart is sour from fighting
and like so many of our war veterans today, will never forget the horrible
things thay have seen. Go Elesandro

I read this poem just after reading his earlier poem "As I ponder'd in
Silence" from the first volume and I suggest reading these two poems in
tandem to others. I feel through Whitman's poetry that he desires to give
courage and hope to his readers who, like all mankind, must tredge through
the battle of life. Whitman's peaceful and beautiful aproach to life is
comforting and fresh. I hope others feel this same strength as they read
his poetry.

I read this poem first on the book "The short timers" by Gustav Hasford. It
impressioned me the placidity, the freshness, describing Death and Life.
Thanks for the attention
