"Do anything, but let it produce joy."
—Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

daymakerdave Mar 08, 2011

Come, my tan-faced children,
Follow well in order, get your weapons ready;
Have you your pistols? have you your sharp edged axes? Pioneers! O pioneers!

For we cannot tarry here,
We must march my darlings, we must bear the brunt of danger,
We, the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend, Pioneers! O pioneers!

This is some of the first poetry that I actually enjoyed! I had read all kinds of poetry and never really got it or cared to, until I read "Pioneer's O' Pioneers" by Walt Whitman. That was 15 years ago and that poem still speaks to me. Whitman eventually led me to reading stuff by authors like Richard Brautigan and William Blake. Thanks Walt.
