Introduction
Early Notebook Fragments of "Song of Myself"
"I am your voice--It was tied in you--In me it begins to talk"
"I am the poet of reality"
"One touch of a tug of me has unhaltered all my senses but feeling"
"Afar in the sky was a nest"
"The crowds naked in the bath"
"In vain were nails driven through my hands"
"There is no word in any tongue"
Song of Myself
"I wander all night in my vision" [The Sleepers]
Crossing Brooklyn Ferry
Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking
I Ebb'd with the Ocean of Life
When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd
Poets to Come
To the Garden the World
From Pent-up Aching Rivers
I Sing the Body Electric
A Woman Waits for Me
Spontaneous Me
Ages and Ages Returning at Intervals
O Hymen! O Hymenee!
I Am He that Aches with Love
Facing West from California's Shores
As Adam Early in the Morning
In Paths Untrodden
Scented Herbage of My Breast
Whoever You Are Holding Me Now in Hand
Of the Terrible Doubt of Appearances
City of Orgies
I Saw in Louisiana a Live-Oak Growing
On the Beach at Night
The World Below the Brine
A Hand-Mirror
The Dalliance of the Eagles
As Toilsome I Wander'd Virginia's Woods
The Wound-Dresser
Reconciliation
There Was a Child Went Forth
Chanting the Square Deific
A Noiseless Patient Spider
O Living Always, Always Dying
The Last Invocation
A Clear Midnight
Good-Bye my Fancy
When the Full-Grown Poet Came
Good-Bye my Fancy!
"Respondez! Respondez!"
