BROADWAY


What hurrying human tides or day or night!

What passions, winnings, losses, ardors, swim thy waters!

What whirls of evil, bliss and sorrow, stem thee!

What curious questioning glances -- glints of love!

Leer, envy, scorn, contempt, hope, aspiration!

Thou portal -- thou arena -- thou of the myriad long-drawn lines and groups!

(Could but thy flagstones, curbs, facades, tell their inimitable tales;

Thy windows rich, and huge hotels -- thy side-walks wide;)

Thou of the endless sliding, mincing, shuffling feet!

Thou, like the part-colored world itself -- like infinite, teeming, mocking life!

Thou visor'd, vast, unspeakable show and lesson!



-Walt Whitman
