Walt Whitman

I don't know many people who are into poetry.... but sometimes, on an especially inspiring day, it is one of my favorite things to read. Yesterday on my commute to work I was reading a little Walt Whitman and I came across this one. I think it is perfection and I want you to experience it too.

O You Whom I Often and Silently Come

O You whom I often and silently come
where you are that I may
be with you,

As I walk by your side or sit near
or remain in the same room with you,

Little you know the subtle electric fire
that for your sake is playing within me.
