WHY! who makes much of a miracle?

As to me, I know of nothing else but miracles,

Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,

Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,

Or wade with naked feet along the beach, just in the edge of the

water,

Or stand under trees in the woods,

Or talk by day with any one I love--or sleep in the bed at night with

any one I love,

Or sit at table at dinner with my mother,

Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,

Or watch honey-bees busy around the hive, of a summer forenoon,10

Or animals feeding in the fields,

Or birds--or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,

Or the wonderfulness of the sun-down--or of stars shining so quiet

and bright,

Or the exquisite, delicate, thin curve of the new moon in spring;

Or whether I go among those I like best, and that like me best--

mechanics, boatmen, farmers,

Or among the savans--or to the soiree--or to the opera,

Or stand a long while looking at the movements of machinery,

Or behold children at their sports,

Or the admirable sight of the perfect old man, or the perfect old

woman,

Or the sick in hospitals, or the dead carried to burial,20

Or my own eyes and figure in the glass;

These, with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,

The whole referring--yet each distinct, and in its place.



To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,

Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,

Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the

same,

Every foot of the interior swarms with the same;

Every spear of grass--the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women,

and all that concerns them,

All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.



To me the sea is a continual miracle;30

The fishes that swim--the rocks--the motion of the waves--the ships,

with men in them,

What stranger miracles are there?

I love how Walt Whitman has written this poem. He stepped away from the busyness of life and reflected on how blessed he is. We often get lost in everything we have to do for the day. In all the problems happening in the world that the TV is always showing us, always talking about whats going wrong not what's going right. We often get lost in our mobile devices and get carried away playing games or apps not aware how much time it takes away from us. We often get lost on the world of internet. All these things lets us focus on what's going on outward not what's going on inward. Because of that we often find ourselves so bored and closed in. All these things are a distraction from how loved we are by Father God, the Master of the Universe, our Creator. Walt Whitman guides us how he felt loved by God by expressing how everything he felt was beautiful. And every little thing he noticed, he felt loved by God. He somehow understood inside of him, was a God who was real, who was alive, and who loved him so much, he was given this world to enjoy. He somehow understood that all the beauty of the world was God helping Walt find His love. Thank you Walt for helping describe how beautiful God created you to feel His love.

For most of us , miracles are something that happen in our life\'s unexpectedly.But in the poem \'Miracles\'by Walt Whitman,the poet tries to convey to us that the common place things that surround us and all that happen around us are rendered some meaning and significance.The ordinary experience that we commonly ignore in our every day life rise to an extraordinary level in the poem.Without mentioning the name of God,Whitman has succeeded in creating a divine atmosphere in the profund mystery of truth that to experience and enjoy even the smallest thing in life and nature and miracles.

Whittman wants the reader to learn to appreciate life, and also realized that one\'s daily activities and observed occurances can all be miracles, depending on the way in which one perceives them. The way in which we view nature is reflected in our own personalities- such as pessimism or optimism for example. Whittman is displaying his good-natured character in this poem in saying that all of creation represents miracles.

He\'s trying to get the message across that instead of complaining about the things you don\'t have be exuberant about the things you do have like life for instance

When one analyzes Walt Whitman\'s \"Miracles\" you see the apparent theme of taking the little things in life for granted. We take so many little things that we are so lucky to have for granted because we are so materialistic. Some people don\'t even have fresh running water. We need to realize exactly what Walt Whitman is trying to make us realize and change the \"Man in the Mirror\" -Michael Jackson\'s Man in the Mirror (:

Everyone takes things for granted but the speaker believes that everything little or big is a miracle because it just how life is so he admires every part of it!

Walt Whitman is an amazing poet and "Miracles" reflects that fact. Everyone takes things for granted sometimes but with Walt Whitman's poem, hopefully everyone can change that step by step.
