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.

After reading nearly all of Whitman's work, Miracles is still my favorite.
For me, reading it is humbling.

What is the style, genre, form, stanza type, and rhyme scheme of the poem?
What are examples of figurative and sensory language in the poem?
