I Heard You Solemn-Sweet Pipes of the Organ


by Walt Whitman

I heard you solemn-sweet pipes of the organ as last Sunday 
morn I pass’d the church,


Winds of autumn, as I walk’d the woods at dusk I heard your 
long-stretch’d sighs up above so mournful,


I heard the perfect Italian tenor singing at the opera, I heard 
the soprano in the midst of the quartet singing;


Heart of my love! you too I heard murmuring low through 
one of the wrists around my head,


Heard the pulse of you when all was still ringing little bells
 last night under my ear.
