Walt Whitman - My Picture-Gallery.

IN a little house keep I pictures suspended, it is not a fix’d house, 
It is round, it is only a few inches from one side to the other; 
Yet behold, it has room for all the shows of the world, all memories? 
Here the tableaus of life, and here the groupings of death; 
Here, do you know this? this is cicerone himself,
With finger rais’d he points to the prodigal pictures.

I liked this poem, although it seems to relate to "brain", I as well, associate with my camera, it too holds many memories for me, it is my greatest capture in a physical sense. as far as the one that spoke of "her", it was just a mistake in not knowing. Thanks
