"I CELEBRATE myself,Walt Whitman's Leaves Of Grass is 150 years old today.
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.."
"Great is life . . and real and mystical . . wherever and whoever,
Great is death . . . . Sure as life holds all parts together, death holds all parts together;
Sure as the stars return again after they merge in the light, death is great as life."
