Walt Whitman: Great are the Myths pt.4

Great are the plunges and throes and triumphs and falls of democracy,

Great the reformers with their lapses and screams,

Great the daring and venture of sailors on new explorations.


A poem for sleepy eyes.

Who are the reformers?

From: Leaves of Grass 150th Anniversary Edition (Penguin Classics), pg.156
