"Splendor of Ended Day" in Acadia

Quotes from Song at Sunset (by Walt Whitman) ...

"SPLENDOR of ended day, floating and filling me! "

Views from my window on a rainy October evening in Acadia
"You, Earth and Life, till the last ray gleams, I sing. "

"Illustrious the passing light! "

"Illustrious whatever I see, or hear, or touch, to the last. "

"Wonderful to be here! "

"How the clouds pass silently overhead! "

"How the trees rise and stand up—with strong trunks—with branches and leaves! "
"O amazement of things! "

"O setting sun! though the time has come,
I still warble under you, ....., unmitigated adoration."
