O Sun of Real Peace

O Sun of Real Peace

O SUN of real peace! O hastening light!
O free and extatic! O what I here, preparing, warble for!
O the sun of the world will ascend, dazzling, and take his height-and you too, O my
Ideal,
will surely ascend!
O so amazing and broad-up there resplendent, darting and burning!
O vision prophetic, stagger’d with weight of light! with pouring glories!
O lips of my soul, already becoming powerless!
O ample and grand Presidentiads! Now the war, the war is over!
New history! new heroes! I project you!
Visions of poets! only you really last! sweep on! sweep on!
O heights too swift and dizzy yet!
O purged and luminous! you threaten me more than I can stand!
(I must not venture-the ground under my feet menaces me-it will not support me:
O future too immense,)-O present, I return, while yet I may, to you.



Poem O Sun of Real Peace - Walt Whitman
