The grass is made of “hopeful green stuff woven”. This definition underscores that the universal existence of the grass makes it a perfect symbol for hope. It is “woven,” because hope consists of different dimensions, including love, tenderness, and consistence, among others. “green” becomes something that people can feel, because IF hope is felt, green can also be felt. I can feel hope indeed when I breathe in the greeneries of my surroundings. Green makes me feel warm and hopeful. In addition, the grass can also be seen as “the handkerchief of the Lord”. I agree with this definition too, because since grass is everywhere, it asserts God's omnipresence. And because grass is simple and natural, it stands for God's love too: His love is uncomplicated and simply permanent. Whitman indicates that simplicity underlies life's complexities and it can be explained by defining what a grass is. His definition of the grass also defines God's love and hope. God's love and hope can be encapsulated in the grass's essence.
