“Beat! beat! drums!blow! bugles! blow!
Through the windowsthrough doorsburst like a ruthless force,
Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation;
Into the school where the scholar is studying;
Leave not the bridegroom quietno happiness must he have now with his bride;
Nor the peaceful farmer any peace, plough his field or gathering his
So fierce you whirr and pound, you drumsso shrill you bugles blow.”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)

Is straight and slender, and as brown in hue
As hazelnuts, and sweeter than the kernels.”
