    Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking<br />
    BY WALT WHITMAN<br />
    <br />
    "Out of the cradle endlessly rocking, <br />
    Out of the mocking-bird’s throat, the musical shuttle, <br />
    Out of the Ninth-month midnight, <br />
    Over the sterile sands and the fields beyond, where the child leaving his bed wander’d alone, bareheaded, barefoot, <br />
    Down from the shower’d halo, <br />
    Up from the mystic play of shadows twining and twisting as if they were alive, <br />
    Out from the patches of briers and blackberries, <br />
    From the memories of the bird that chanted to me, <br />
    From your memories sad brother, from the fitful risings and fallings I heard, <br />
    From under that yellow half-moon late-risen and swollen as if with tears, <br />
    From those beginning notes of yearning and love there in the mist, <br />
    From the thousand responses of my heart never to cease, <br />
    From the myriad thence-arous’d words, <br />
    From the word stronger and more delicious than any, <br />
    From such as now they start the scene revisiting, <br />
    As a flock, twittering, rising, or overhead passing, <br />
    Borne hither, ere all eludes me, hurriedly, <br />
    A man, yet by these tears a little boy again, <br />
    Throwing myself on the sand, confronting the waves, <br />
    I, chanter of pains and joys, uniter of here and hereafter, <br />
    Taking all hints to use them, but swiftly leaping beyond them, <br />
    A reminiscence sing."<br />
    <br />
    I remember more than I can ever tell you - colors, and the sound of your voice, singing.<br />
    <br />
    Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.<br />
    Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the light: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."<br />
    {{~John 14: 1,6~}}
    <br />
    <br />
    The fool saith in his heart there is no God.<br />
    <br />
