I love Walt Whitman, what does that say about me?

Marmalade Sky, by Jaime Zollars, whose creations are a poem in themselves.


TO YOU
Stranger! If you, passing, meet me,
and desire to speak to me,
why should you not speak to me?
And why should I not speak to you?
--Walt Whitman

And, stranger, if you, while working, surf the internet, and desire to take another personality test that's going around, why shouldn't you? And why shouldn't I? (it's a good one!!)

really covering the entire gamut in this post, eh?

Hey Moll, that link doesn't work for me. Instead of the personality test I get Error 404/page not found. As for what liking Walt Whitman tells me about you...it tells me what to get you for Christmas! It's an S and I'll say no more.

Walt loves you, too:

IN the new garden, in all the parts,
In cities now, modern, I wander,
Though the second or third result, or still further, primitive yet,
Days, places, indifferent--though various, the same,
Time, Paradise, the Mannahatta, the prairies, finding me unchanged,
Death indifferent--Is it that I lived long since? Was I buried very
long ago?
For all that, I may now be watching you here, this moment;
For the future, with determined will, I seek--the woman of the
future,
You, born years, centuries after me, I seek.
