I found this is one interpretation. [In reply to] Can't Post

But Whitman i read, was just depressed for the inability to buy Christmas presents for his kids because of poor results at the market. Not to the point of suicide, just depression and duty, the bells being a momentary cheering element to move on .

But in the end it is the reader/interpreter that signals its meaning. A Rorschach lightning rod to draw and then reflect back the bend of the spirit at the moment. Just like what can be expressed in this reference. I read different references but they signal just more impressions.

Again what matters to each of us i think, is what we personally feel, learning what the inward plunge will tell us.

I take this for a unhindered moment, removed from the stresses of society at large, to move away from the possible misinterpretations of prying eyes to delve into the comfort of peace and wonder of the moment. I love to walk into the woods at times like this. For me it produces an 'eternal moment' if you will. A simple singularity of focus. A draw from the usual business of random thought. usually centered around the 'survival mode'

The horse may be wondering, of course, the change from the usual, or it may be shaking off the cold snow that was accumulating, feeling it more upon stopping.

The repetitive end seems like a mantra to ease the mind back into the world at large, duty certainly being one of them. But those are just my 'reflections'

Whitman also said he cared little for others' myriad interpretation of his work. He did not mind that they did, he just did not want to be there when they did. I can understand that.
