ARMED year! year of the struggle!

No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!

Not you as some pale poet ling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas


But as a strong man, erect, clothed in blue clothes, advancing, carrying a rifle on your shoulder,

With well-gristled body and sun burnt face and hands-with a knife in the belt at your side,

As I heard you shouting loud-your sonorous voice ringing across the continent;

Your masculine voice, O year, as rising amid the great cities,

Amid the men of Manhattan I saw you, as one of the workmen, the dwellers in Manhattan;

Or with large steps crossing the prairies out of Illinois and Indiana,

Rapidly crossing the West with springy gait, and descending the Alleghenies;

Or down from the great lakes, or in Pennsylvania, or on deck along the Ohio river;

Or southward along the Tennessee or Cumberland rivers, or at Chattanooga on the mountain top,

Saw I your gait and saw I your sinewy limbs, clothed in blue, bearing weapons, robust year;

Heard your determinate voice, launched forth again and again;

Year that suddenly sang by the mouths of the playground cannon, I repeat you, hurrying, crashing, sad, distracted year.

Walt Whitman
