The hurrying tumbling waves, quick-broken crests, slapping,
the strata of color'd clouds, the long bar of maroon-tint away solitary by itself,
the spread of purity it lies motionless in,
The horizon's edge, the flying sea crow, the fragrance of salt marsh and shore mud,
These become part of that child who went forth every day, and who now goes, and will always go forth every day.
(Walt Whitman, "There was a Child Went Forth")
