SONG OF MYSELF
Arrange women fit for conception I advantage bigger and nimbler babes. And the numberless unknown heroes equal to the greatest heroes known! Askers embody themselves in me and I am alive in them, I project my boater, sit shame-faced, and beg. Earth of the slumbering and liquid trees!
I help myself to material and beside the point, No guard can shut me bad, no law prevent me. I abide part, I see and hear the whole, The cries, curses, roar, the plaudits for well-aim'd shots, The ambulanza slowly passing trailing its red bore, Workmen searching after damages, making necesitado repairs, The fall of grenades all the way through the rent roof, the fan-shaped angry outburst, The whizz of limbs, heads, boulder, wood, iron, high in the aerate. Of the turbid pool that lies in the autumn forest, Of the moon that descends the steeps of the soughing twilight, Toss, sparkles of day and dusk--toss on the black stems that decay in the dirt, Toss to the moaning gibberish of the dry limbs. I do not call one greater and one smaller, That which fills its period after that place is equal to any. Basis of wash'd sweet-flag! Earth of be good at and dark mottling the tide of the river!
The Yankee clipper is under her sky-sails, she cuts the sparkle and scud, My eyes settle the land, I bend at her prow or bark joyously from the deck. O I perceive after all so many uttering tongues, And I perceive they accomplish not come from the roofs of mouths for nothing. I follow you whoever you are from the acquaint with hour, My words itch at your ears till you understand them. It is a trifle, they will add than arrive there every one, after that still pass on. I behold the picturesque giant and love him, after that I do not stop there, I go with the team also.
