ABSTRACT
The author reflects on poet Walt Whitman, on his poems and on his reading of Whitman's poem "Faces," which is included in Whitman's book "Leaves of Grass" while sitting on a mossed rock beside a lake. Whitman's poem "Faces" portrays a strong belief in an immortal life and man's immortal soul. The soul has all the time in the world to develop and eliminate all the inequalities seen in individuals. Whitman's beliefs produces exaltation of the reader's spirit. "Faces" fortifies and encourages the reader. It makes man ignore the pettiness and trivialities of life.
