Poem for the Day: A Promise to California, by Walt Witman

Big Sur, CA surf photo shoot with Dand Richardson May 24-28, 2011.

A promise to California,
Or inland to the great pastoral Plains, and on to Puget sound and Oregon;
Sojourning east a while longer, soon I travel toward you, to remain,
to teach robust American love,
For I know very well that I and robust love belong among you,
inland, and along the Western sea;
For these States tend inland and toward the Western sea, and I will also.
