By Walt Whitman
I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And the thing I assume you shall assume, for each and every atom owned by me personally as good belongs to you.
My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d out of this soil, this fresh atmosphere, created right here of moms and dads created right here from moms and dads the exact same, and their moms and dads similar, we, now thirty-seven yrs old in perfect wellness start, looking to stop perhaps perhaps not till death.
Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring right right back a little while sufficed at what they’re, but never ever forgotten, we harbor for bad or good, we allow to talk at every risk, Nature without talk with initial power.
Homes and spaces are packed with perfumes, the racks are crowded with perfumes, we inhale the scent myself and understand it and me also, but I shall not let it like it, The distillation would intoxicate.
The atmosphere just isn’t a perfume, this has no style for the distillation, it really is odorless, it really is for my lips forever, i will be in love for it to be in contact with me with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad .
The smoke of my very own breath, Echoes, ripples, buzz’d whispers, love-root, silk-thread, crotch and vine, My respiration and motivation, the beating of my heart, the passage through of blood and air through my lung area, The sniff of green leaves and dry leaves, and of the shore and dark-color’d sea-rocks, and of hay into the barn,
The noise of this belch’d terms of my sound loos’d into the eddies of this wind,
A few light kisses, a couple of embraces, a reaching around of hands, The play of shine and shade regarding the woods because the supple boughs wag, The pleasure alone or into the rush for the streets, or over the areas and hill-sides, the experience of health, the full-noon trill, the song of me personally increasing from bed and fulfilling the sun’s rays.
