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 and the diagrams, to add, divide, and
measure them,
when I sitting heard the 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 (1864)
 
galiba tatilin en güzel tarafı şehrin ışıklarından uzaklaşıp yıldızları görebilmek.
