Walt Whitman hand written poem I cross’d the Nevadas…. Date unknown. 19th century.
I cross’d the Nevadas, I cross’d the        plateaus,I ascended the towering rocks along the        Pacific, I sail’d out to sea,I sail’d through the storm, I was re-        fresh’d by the storm,I watch’d with joy the threatening maws        of the waves,I mark’d the white combs where they        career’d so high curling over,I heard the wind piping, I saw the        black clouds,

Walt Whitman hand written poem I cross’d the Nevadas…. Date unknown. 19th century.

I cross’d the Nevadas, I cross’d the
        plateaus,
I ascended the towering rocks along the
        Pacific, I sail’d out to sea,
I sail’d through the storm, I was re-
        fresh’d by the storm,
I watch’d with joy the threatening maws
        of the waves,
I mark’d the white combs where they
        career’d so high curling over,
I heard the wind piping, I saw the
        black clouds,
