5:120 Song of Myself by Walt Whitman

An incredible use of language to express how one is part of everything and everyone and yet no one and nothing at the same time.  To express that joy and sorrow in the universe and all in it all at the same time.  This is one that is still sitting and resonating within me and probably will for a while as I formulate further thoughts on it.  I really look forward to the fact that I will be reading it again in a few years for the next child's school if not sooner just for myself and maybe at that time I will be able to more fully put my thoughts into words for others.
