Walt Whitman on Peace

Walt Whitman said "Peace is always beautiful"

A Bit About Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman was born on May 31st in 1819, and died in 1892. He stands as one of America’s greatest poets. Whitman was a member of the Humanist movement, and his poetry reflects an egalitarian view of human value.

Reconciliation

Word over all, beautiful as the sky,
Beautiful that war and all its deeds of carnage must in time be utterly lost,
That the hands of the sisters Death and Night incessantly softly wash again
and ever again, this soiled world;
For my enemy is dead, a man divine as myself is dead,
I look where he lies white-faced and still in the coffin— I draw near,
Bend down and touch lightly with my lips the white face in the coffin.

Walt Whitman (1865)
