Splendor of ended day floating and filling me,

Hour prophetic, hour resuming the past,

Inflating my throat, you divine average,

You earth and life till the last ray gleams I sing.

Open mouth of my soul uttering gladness,

Eyes of my soul seeing perfection,

Natural life of me faithfully praising things,

Corroborating forever the triumph of things.

Illustrious every one!

Illustrious what we name space, sphere of unnumber’d

Illustrious the mystery of motion in all beings,
even the tiniest insect,

Illustrious the attribute of speech, the senses, the body,

Illustrious the passing light—illustrious the pale reflection
on the new moon in the western sky,

Illustrious whatever I see or hear or touch, to the last.

— from Song at Sunset by Walt Whitman

  1. Clouds fascinate me. For some reason I’m looking to the heavens more these days.


  2. Beautifully rendered!
