The ineffable

I've spent a lot of time with the works of Walt Whitman over the years - to my very great benefit. But only today did I come across these lovely lines:

The earth is rude, silent, incomprehensible at first; Be not discouraged-- keep on-- there are divine things, well envelop'd; I swear to you there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell.

~Walt Whitman, 'Song of The Open Road'
