SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I thought I would read you just a portion of a poem by Walt Whitman. He was one of the favorite poets of my youth. He wrote on and on, so it is hard to get a short poem out of Walt Whitman. But people do divide up his poems on their own. And here is, I think probably a ‘divided out’ poem called “Are You the New Person Drawn toward Me?” …

“Are You the New Person Drawn Toward Me?”
by Walt Whitman

“Are you the new person drawn toward me?
“To begin with take warning, I am surely far different from what you suppose;
“Do you suppose you will find in me your ideal?
“Do you think it so easy to have me become your lover?
“Do you think the friendship of me would be unalloy’d satisfaction?
“Do you think I am trusty and faithful?
“Do you see no further than this facade, this smooth and tolerant manner of me?
“Do you suppose yourself advancing on real ground toward a real heroic man?
“Have you no thought O dreamer that it may be all maya, illusion?” –from “Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman … public domain

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
