“Delicious As The Kisses Of God” Walt Whitman



When researching Walt Whitman’s Missing Notebooks Now Online, the first page I randomly selected for viewing (the notebook contents are not searchable) was Page 22 of the “Perceptions or Senses” Notebook. At the top of that page I happened onto this felicitous phrase, scribbled in Whitman’s own hand:

Delicious as the kisses of god




Is that cool or what?
