    When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer
    When I heard the learn'd astronomer,
    When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
    When I was shown the charts, the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
    When I sitting heard the learned astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture room,
    How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
    Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,
    In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
    Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.

    -Walt Whitman
