Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

127. Year that Trembled


YEAR that trembled and reel’d beneath me! 
Your summer wind was warm enough—yet the air I breathed froze me; 
A thick gloom fell through the sunshine and darken’d me; 
Must I change my triumphant songs? said I to myself; 
Must I indeed learn to chant the cold dirges of the baffled?         5
And sullen hymns of defeat?
