Sunday Inspiration

From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines,
Going where I list, my own master total and absolute,
Listening to others, considering well what they say,
Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating,
Gently,but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me.
I inhale great draughts of space,
The east and the west are mine, and the north and the south are mine.

I am larger, better than I thought,
I did not know I held so much goodness.

--From "Song of the Open Road," by Walt Whitman (aka Uncle Walt). Pretty close to a perfect poem in my eyes. (Read the entire poem here)
