Out Of The Cradle Endlessly Rocking

A quiet walk on Coffin’s Beach this beautiful morning put me in the mood to again share a snippet of Walt Whitman’s haunting chant.

Walt was born on May 31, 1819 and died on March 26, 1892. Among his greatest poems is Out of The Cradle Endlessly Rocking. The first stanza is 24 lines long and consists of a single grammatically correct sentence. I have attempted to capture the mood and content of that stanza in this short (5 minute) video.
