Brooklyn Ferry : LUSENET : americanlit : One Thread

I think I know the answer to my own question, but I want to see if others agree. In Whitman's poem, "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," is the poem being told from the point of view of the ferry itself? I read it that way, but it could possibly be a passenger on the ferry as well, what does anyone else think?

I think that it is the view of what the ferry see's day in and day out. Mainly for the reason that no ordinary person would notice that much. In a way its kind of like God, because he is all knowing and the ferry also knows all that is going on around it.
