Walt "Wally" Whitman, the erstwhile center fielder for the American Canons and pitcher for the Cosmic All-Stars, turns 193 today.  While very much the crafty veteran, the joy and exuberance with which Whitman takes the field while platooning with R.W. Emerson is evidenced in every bare-footed step he takes in the outfield grass. In celebration of his birthday, we're presenting an excerpt from his little-known poetic homage to his American Canons teammate and captain, Ahab. from "O Captain! My Captain!"

Novel-T is crazy about Walt Whitman. We're so crazy for Whitman, in fact, that we offer two Walt Whitman t-shirts: our standard Walt Whitman jersey and our Walt's With Me special edition tee shirt. Whitman is taught less and less in high schools, so fewer readers are encountering him these days. If you don't know where to start, consider "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" and "Song of Myself." No matter how many times we've done it, reading those poems always puts us in a good mood. We're also put in a good mood when we discover other folks that are ecstatic about...
