Look Down, Fair Moon

LOOK down, fair moon, and bathe this scene;
Pour softly down night’s nimbus floods, on faces ghastly, swollen, purple;
On the dead, on their backs, with their arms toss’d wide,
Pour down your unstinted nimbus, sacred moon.

Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892

Look Down, Fair Moon
(from Leaves of Grass pub. 1900)
