Ummm... this poem was sorta disturbing, talking about the corpses that we
put into the ground, but it is true. How do we not catch som disease from
the earth when it is so polluted by the diseases of humans? Well, I'll get
over it eventually!!

I felt Whitman's sense of balance and harmony in living things and an
acceptance, without judgement, that existence exists. An understanding that
one cannot have a reference point without the good and the bad. That both
are necessary and serve a beautiful purpose in all that is around us.

I agree Whitman did a great job in recognising the gifts our earth bares,
and the free spirit of human connection without a scornfull discrimination.
Ontop of that, I like the strong point of the divine perfection that Walt
depict the earth as attaining. How now matter how our race's chaos scarns
the earth, she will always give out the beautifull gifts she bares.

i really like this poem! It's like telling us to look beyond and under
something or someone.. That all things come round. Walt Whitman puts
forward to us both a fascination and a fear of earth..
