by Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

A farm picture
Language: English 
Through the ample open door of the peaceful country barn,
A sun-lit pasture field, with cattle and horses feeding;
And haze, and vista, and the far horizon, fading away.

Confirmed with Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, Philadelphia: David McKay, [c1900].
