i have been reading a lot of walts work and i find it hard to know if he
really means what he is saying in his poem. a lot of his work is expressing
his own feelings about things and i have to wonder how he came up with such
an optimistic poem considering how big of a change it seems to be from his
other work

yes! we miss and neglect many things no matter they are near or far away
from us. There are so many things around us that we should care about more
surroundings, maybe someday we will find that there is a beautiful scenery
ahead of us!

i like poem, and it reminds me of Helen's Three Days to See. an ordinary
person will casually take everything for granded, then lost the
appreciation of the natural world. we should enjoy the nature as much as
possible, then you will find miracle....

Is miracles a lyric poem? Or could it be an ode?

When I first read the poem I was confused I mean I got what he meant I just
didn't know how he could find all of those things as miracles, but now that
I am reading it again I now know how he sees miracles everywhere.

To me this poem is about how we take everything for granted. Instead of
being thankful for all of these gifts of life we live negatively. To
Whitman everything is a miracle and by having this optimistic outlook on
life how could anyone have any regrets? We can't.
