Analysis and comments on Ox Tamer, The. by Walt Whitman

Comment 1 of 1, added on January 26th, 2009 at 2:02 PM.

I happily comment and wonder why no one has done this yet -
This is the year of the Ox in the Chinese Zodiac -
Maybe they appreciate nature more and their faithful helpers in toiling the
soil, carting the loads, delivering even in death so much that can be used
-
The meat, the hide, the horn, the bone -
So different from the crushed and compacted mountains of waste of cars -
So different in faithfulness, loyalty and pursuit of work - literally
through thick and thin
Maybe the Chinese have not forgotten the true friends of man
the animals - and amongst them one of the most useful ones -
the OX


PS
Send it out to Asian friends for New Year's greetings in the Year of the
OX

Nothing to waste not li
