On Old Man's Thought Of School Analysis

Author: Poetry of Walt Whitman Type: Poetry Views: 600

AN old man's thought of School;

An old man, gathering youthful memories and blooms, that youth itself


Now only do I know you!

O fair auroral skies! O morning dew upon the grass!

And these I see--these sparkling eyes,

These stores of mystic meaning--these young lives,

Building, equipping, like a fleet of ships--immortal ships!

Soon to sail out over the measureless seas,

On the Soul's voyage.

Only a lot of boys and girls?10

Only the tiresome spelling, writing, ciphering classes?

Only a Public School?

Ah more--infinitely more;

(As George Fox rais'd his warning cry, "Is it this pile of brick and

mortar--these dead floors, windows, rails--you call the church?

Why this is not the church at all--the Church is living, ever living


And you, America,

Cast you the real reckoning for your present?

The lights and shadows of your future--good or evil?

To girlhood, boyhood look--the Teacher and the School.
