Odes to Walt Whitman for some reason tend to be my favorite. This Allen Ginsberg one in particular, so I was happy to discover this new poem recently. (It’s not quite an ode, more of an homage, but who cares it’s beautiful.)
Noon on the mountain!—
And all the crags are husky faces powerful with love for the sun;
All the shadows
Whisper of the sun.
