  4. O Tan-Faced Prairie-Boy by Walt Whitman
O Tan-Faced Prairie-Boy

Related Poem Content Details

O tan-faced prairie-boy,
Before you came to camp came many a welcome gift,
Praises and presents came and nourishing food, till at last among the recruits,
You came, taciturn, with nothing to give – we but look’d on each other,
When lo! more than all the gifts of the world you gave me.
