LkgNKX Internet is written with the capital letter in a sentence, by the
way. And hundredths are written not with a point but with a comma. This is
according to the standard. And actually everything is very good..!!

I like that he deduces from all his senses, from the scene around him
(which i just take to be a funeral, and its him observing everything around
him) that there is this an invisible world "heaven" call it where death
claims people. The funny thing is that it is an untangible unsenseable
place, but yet his senses his environment seems to say that. I think that
is the coolest part about this poem.

Didn't you guys ever take basic poetry clas? First thing you have to do
after you look at the title is read it at least three times. I, personaly
like the poem because it's a taad bit calming. That, or I'm still tired. XD

This poem is not stupid, unless you just believe poetry in general is
stupid. Walt Whitman's poem "Whispers of Heavenly Death" is a poem full of
sorrow and death (Obviously) but it is describing feelings inside of
mourning and maybe his life ws complicated at the time, and he could see
all of these things around him becoming grim and mixed up. A soul passing
over....... that sounds like he felt so much anguish in his life, maybe he
even felt like he was dying. The poem is great, and very deep. I agree with
Amanda. =)

Truly big Whitman was feeling his own mortatlitiy and
he could feel his life thru the moving clouds of life
cuz dark clouds are full of rain and his impending
death was another life for him self, good poem
