What is your favorite poem by Walt Whitman?
I Sing The Body Electric
Song of Myself.
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?
We have thus far exhausted trillions of winters and summers,
There are trillions ahead, and trillions ahead of them.
Births have brought us richness and variety,
And other births will bring us richness and variety.
I do not call one greater and one smaller,
That which fills its period and place is equal to any."
1. When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloomed
2, Oh Captain! My Captain
Whitman is without a doubt the greatest American poet. Better than anyone else, he captured the spirit of American democracy.
