Read Walt Whitman’s Poetry for Free!

A day as today, in 1892, Walt Whitman died.Whitman was one of the most important poets of all time. He is called the father of free verse. His work was very controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass, which was described as obscene for its overt sexuality.

You can read all his books for free. Open FrostWire, search for “Walt Whitman”, and you will see results from Archive.org.

Here is a famous extract from his book Leaves of Grass.

O Captain! My Captain!

BY WALT WHITMAN

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
                         But O heart! heart! heart!
                            O the bleeding drops of red,
                               Where on the deck my Captain lies,
                                  Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
                         Here Captain! dear father!
                            This arm beneath your head!
                               It is some dream that on the deck,
                                 You’ve fallen cold and dead.
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
                         Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
                            But I with mournful tread,
                               Walk the deck my Captain lies,
                                  Fallen cold and dead.

    Futurelight from Poland are no newbies in the indie-rock scene. Their first EP, released in 2014 gained them considerable attention in online circles and was also reviewed here on FrostClick. The band now returns with their second EP, Better Place, which sees them experimenting with a tinge of electronic music in their rock.

    #Indie #Pop
    For music lovers, finding the right track that suits your palette may be a never-ending task. At times, it may be a hit and miss, jumping from one promising song to another. In I’m Not a Pilot‘s latest release titled The Story So Far, indie pop junkies who thrives in the musicality of Coldplay, Jimmy Eat World, and Ra Ra Riot may have found a perfect match.

  3. Brandy Zdan

    Alternative rock is in full gear with Brandy Zdan‘s self-titled album.

    Even though this is just Zdan’s first album, the Canadian singer has been a mainstay in the indie rock scene for years and has made a name for herself. Now based in Nashville, TN, Zdan’s career has seen a lot of milestones. She collaborated with Twilight Hotel for two albums: High Prayer in 2008 and When the Wolves Go Blind in 2011, which was nominated in Canada’s Juno Awards. She has also toured and debuted her EP, Lone Hunter, in 2013.

  4. High Highs: Ocean to City EP and Some Sketches

    #Indie #Ambient
    Musical duo Jack Milas and Oli Chang have been conquering the indie scene bit by bit. The Brooklyn-based musicians have already toured with big-name bands such as the Vampire Weekend, Empire Of The Sun, Sky Ferreira, and Stars. In Ocean to City EP and Some Sketches, Milas and Chang have created five tracks that mirror their experiences while traveling and touring around the country.

  5. Coma Cinema: Posthumous Release

    #Indie
    Coma Cinema‘s music sounds as if it came from a strange and quiet place. The band never references specific geography, but the depressive attitude in their music is one where the city moves at a slow pace, not NYC music here. This is not a 100% -depressive state- record, I think this record sings about missed opportunities, boredom and 0 things to look for. But the strangest thing that I found in this record is that you can have pop tunes here, even with the band not trying hard to accomplish this.
