A Favorite Poet and Teacher...Walt Whitman

Image
Walt Whitman is probably my favorite poet - certainly a favorite life teacher! His words have straightened me out more than once. I did this drawing a few days ago of Walt - I was happy with how it turned out and wanted to share it with you all. Here is an excerpt from Walt Whitman's "Song of the Open Road". Enjoy!
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road...
~Walt Whitman
