Comments on: O Me! O Life! http://mcseavey.org/blog/2008/10/14/life/ The wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. -- Mary Oliver Wed, 09 Sep 2015 20:33:37 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Mardé http://mcseavey.org/blog/2008/10/14/life/comment-page-1/#comment-5931 Wed, 29 Oct 2008 19:55:45 +0000 http://mcseavey.org/blog/?p=1116#comment-5931 The goodness comes from the continuity of the process? How about that in spite of life’s seeming meaninglessness, we are here, part of a powerful play, and can make a contribution to it?

Contributing a verse appears to be what is being done more and more as people find new ways to contribute their voice to their external environment.

I guess by now that poem is beginning to wear? How many times can you read the same thing, even if it is Walt Whitman? I’m working on another post which I hope I’ll put up soon.

We must play a role, big or small. I’ve bookmarked this page and will print it later so that I’ll have my own copy of Walt Whitman. Thank you for introducing me to a great poet! :)

Yes, Whitman was an amazing person. We’ve got an old copy of Leaves of Grass that we look at from time to time. I like the Answer in this poem. Too bad your copy of Leaves of Grass disappeared. Not somewhere on that island?
