My Favorite Poem From Walt Whitman
The poem that I enjoyed was Beat! Beat! Drums!. Mainly because it is a joyful kind of poem and it's about music and just living. It also makes me laugh because in this poem he is basically talking about waking up the town and people in bed wont be able to sleep because of the drums playing in the street. I really enjoy his poems because he is free spirited and doesn't care about what people think of him. This poem in particular is a good example because of his title and how he expresses his feelings about the specific topic. There are parts in the poem that I do not understand but for the most part it is a enjoyable poem. This poem is my favorite from him.
