I loaf and invite my soul, I lean and loaf at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. Do you guess I have some intricate purpose? Well I have, for the April rain has, and the mica on the side of a rock has. Do you take it I would astonish? Does the daylight astonish? Or the early redstart twittering through the woods? Do I astonish more than they? Well, this hour I tell you some things in confidence, I might not tell everybody, but I will tell you. I am the poet of the Body and I am the poet of the Soul, The pleasures of heaven are with me and the pains of hell are with me, too The first I graft and increase upon myself, the latter I translate into a new tongue. I am the poet of the woman the same as the man, And I say it is as great to be a woman as to be a man, And I say there is nothing greater than the mother of men. I think I could turn and live a while with the animals, they’re so placid and self-contained, I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition, They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God, Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things, Not one kneels to another, not to his kind that lived thousands of years ago, Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth. So they show their relations to me and I accept them, They bring me tokens of myself, they evince them plainly in their possession. Agonies are one of my changes of garments, I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person, My hurt turns livid upon me as I lean upon a cane and observe. It is time to explain myself- let us stand up. What is known I strip away, I launch all men and women forward with me into the Unknown. The clock indicates the moment- but what does eternity indicate? Long enough have you dreamed contemptible dreams, my friend Now I wash the gums from your eyes, You must habit yourself to the dazzle of the light and of every moment of your life hence. Remember, remember yourself. Remember, remember your soul. Remember yourself. Remember your soul.

From Song of Myself By Walt Whitman (1819-1892) I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form'd from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death. Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy. In this version of the poem, Walt Whitman claims to be 37. He was born on May 31, 1819, so he wrote that particular line in 1856 or early 1857 (unless he used "thirty-seven" for the sound, really being some other age when he wrote the line--we should allow for poetic license!).

'Song of Myself' is a poem composed by Walt Whitman. Walt Whitman was an American poet. He is known as an individualistic poet. After reading the poem we feel that this poem does not belong to a particular epoch or school or creed. It is a depiction of human nature. In short, we can say that song of myself shows the sense of fraternity in the world. Everything in all human beings is the same. Their blood is of same colour. He gives a message of unity in diversity. The poet says that people belonging to different religions must have a sense of respect towards every religion. Everything in this world is temporal. So, we should try to be in pursuit of happiness. Pursuit of happiness is the aim of life. In this way he celebrates the unity and brotherhood of the entire humanity by singing of his own 'self'.

Here's the great Walt Whitman reading from his great Work Leaves of Grass "I walt Whitman" from Song of Myself. In the first three editions of Whitman's Leaves of Grass (1855, 1856, 1860), the line in "Song of Myself" that Mir echoes in his "Countersong" reads "Walt Whitman, an American, one of the roughs, a kosmos" (kosmos being a word of particular import, hypothesizing the sublime order of the universe) and in later editions, the line reads "Walt Whitman am I, a Kosmos, of mighty Manhattan the son." The final form of the line, which appears below, opens section 24 of "Song of Myself" in the seventh edition of his Leaves (1881–82): Walt Whitman is America’s world poet—a latter-day successor to Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Shakespeare. In Leaves of Grass (1855), he celebrated democracy, nature, love, and friendship. This monumental work chanted praises to the body as well as to the soul, and found beauty and reassurance even in death. Along with Emily Dickinson, Whitman is regarded as one of America’s most significant nineteenth century poets. Born on Long Island, Whitman grew up in Brooklyn and received limited formal education. His occupations during his lifetime included printer, schoolteacher, reporter, and editor. Whitman’s self-published Leaves of Grass was inspired in part by his travels through the American frontier and by his admiration for Ralph Waldo Emerson. This important publication underwent eight subsequent editions during his lifetime as Whitman expanded and revised the poetry and added more to the original collection of twelve poems. Emerson himself declared the first edition was “the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed.” Whitman published his own enthusiastic review of Leaves of Grass. Critics and readers alike, however, found both Whitman’s style and subject matter unnerving. According to The Longman Anthology of Poetry, “Whitman received little public acclaim for his poems during his lifetime for several reasons: this openness regarding sex, his self-presentation as a rough working man, and his stylistic innovations.” A poet who “abandoned the regular meter and rhyme patterns” of his contemporaries, Whitman was “influenced by the long cadences and rhetorical strategies of Biblical poetry.” Upon publishing Leaves of Grass, Whitman was subsequently fired from his job with the Department of the Interior. Despite his mixed critical reception in the U.S., he was favorably received in England, with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Algernon Charles Swinburne among the British writers who celebrated his work. During the Civil War, Whitman worked as a clerk in Washington, DC. For three years, he visited soldiers during his spare time, dressing wounds and giving solace to the injured. These experiences led to the poems in his 1865 publication, Drum-Taps, which includes, “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d,” Whitman’s elegy for President Lincoln. After suffering a serious stroke in 1873, Whitman moved to his brother’s home in Camden, New Jersey. While his poetry failed to garner popular attention from his American readership during his lifetime, over 1,000 people came to view his funeral. And as the first writer of a truly American poetry, Whitman’s legacy endures. According to The Longman Anthology of Poetry, Whitman’s “ambition, expansiveness, and embrace of all the high and low features of American life influenced many poets of the twentieth century, including D.H. Lawrence, William Carlos Williams, Hart Crane, and Allen Ginsberg.” You can read and inspect many of Whitman's books, letters, and manuscripts at the Walt Whitman Archive, a digital edition at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, directed by Ed Folsom and Kenneth M.
