I cannot be awake for nothing looks to me as it did before, Or else I am awake for the first time, and all before has been a mean sleep.

Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) was an American poet, essayist and journalist. The collection of his poetry,' Leaves of Grass' was highly controversial in its day, as some found its overt sexuality offensive. The quality of his later works places him among the most influential American poets, and he has been called' the father of free verse'.
