TootherLands_Whitman2

To be found in the chapter of¬†Leaves of Grass¬†entitled “Messenger Leaves” are a number of short “message poems” – starting with a direct address to the reader in “To You, Whoever You Are” and branching out to all sorts of people in all kinds of situations and all over the world. “To other Lands” is one of those messages. Photographs (taken from window of the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory Visitor Center) and composition by me.
