      "Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road." Walt Whitman, "Song of the Open Road" Verse 1

      Journey with us as we "take to the open road" with Walt Whitman through his poetry. Whitman was born on May 31, 1819. We will celebrate his 200th birthday by enjoying some of his wonderful poems.

      Reading poetry by Walt Whitman is often regarded as inspirational because he has many suggestions for self-improvement. His poetry is also educational: he is considered America's most influential and revolutionary poet. His work marks the transition from the transcendental movement to the realism movement. We also appreciate his poetry because it is uplifting. And, he is great fun to read!

      "Allons! The road is before us!" Walt Whitman, "Song of the Open Road" verse 12.
