What does "to shame something out of someone" mean? Specially in this sentence by Walt Whitman:
the look of the bay mare shames silliness out of me.
Does it mean the look of the bay mare shames him, because he realizes that how much silliness he has?
The full stanza:
I believe in those wing’d purposes,
And acknowledge red, yellow, white, playing within me,
And consider green and violet and the tufted crown intentional,
And do not call the tortoise unworthy because she is not something else,
And the jay in the woods never studied the gamut, yet trills pretty well to me,
And the look of the bay mare shames silliness out of me.
