Walt Whitman - O Sun of Real Peace.

O SUN of real peace! O hastening light! 
O free and extatic! O what I here, preparing, warble for! 
O the sun of the world will ascend, dazzling, and take his height—and you too, O my
    Ideal,
	will surely ascend! 
O so amazing and broad—up there resplendent, darting and burning! 
O vision prophetic, stagger’d with weight of light! with pouring glories!
O lips of my soul, already becoming powerless! 
O ample and grand Presidentiads! Now the war, the war is over! 
New history! new heroes! I project you! 
Visions of poets! only you really last! sweep on! sweep on! 
O heights too swift and dizzy yet!
O purged and luminous! you threaten me more than I can stand! 
(I must not venture—the ground under my feet menaces me—it will not support me: 
O future too immense,)—O present, I return, while yet I may, to you.

This poem was rather delightful to read. I thought it had a lot of meaning. Plus, It's Walt Whitman's Poem. All his poems are good =D
