    His own soul is named as a character in the book and his poems, he says, are written with the soul in mind. Do I astonish more than they? It is only through these Leaves of grass book of love that a person can come to understand the true nature of another person and the meaning of another being. It is a personal biography of his own personal changes, from young adulthood to old age, and it is a cultural biography of a nation, as Whitman was enamored with the world around him. He is a gentle giant and a friend and father to us all who read him.

    I hear bravuras of birds, Leaves of grass book of growing wheat, gossip of flames, clack of sticks cooking Leaves of grass book meals, I hear the sound I love, the sound of the human voice, I hear all sounds running together, combined, fused or following, Sounds of the city and sounds out of the city, sounds of the day and night, Talkative young ones to those that like them, the loud laugh of work-people at their meals, The angry base of disjointed friendship, the faint tones of the sick, The judge with hands tight to the desk, his pallid lips pronouncing a death-sentence, The heave'e'yo of stevedores unlading ships by the wharves, the refrain of the anchor-lifters, The ring of alarm-bells, the cry of fire, the whirr of swift-streaking engines and hose-carts with premonitory tinkles and color'd lights, The steam-whistle, the solid roll of the train of approaching cars, The slow march play'd at the head of the association marching two and two, They go to guard some corpse, the flag-tops are draped with black muslin. I do not press my fingers across my mouth, I keep as delicate around the bowels as around the head and heart, Copulation is no more rank to me than death is. Have you heard that it was good to gain the day? Earth of departed sunset—earth of the mountains misty-topt! From me to thee glad serenades, Dances for thee I propose saluting thee, adornments and feastings for thee, And the sights of the open landscape and the high-spread shy are fitting, And life and the fields, and the huge and thoughtful night. Aug 08, Karl H.

    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 shout joyously from the deck. And mine a word Leaves of grass book the modern, the word En-Masse. Sea-winds blown from east and west, Blown from the Eastern sea and blown from the Western sea, till there on the prairies meeting, These and with these and the breath of my chant, I'll perfume the grave of him I love. Whitman then begins a journey that covers every aspect of American culture, from labor to leisure, clothing, habits, buildings, streets, and in the alleys where the outcasts of society lived. Still nodding night--mad naked summer night. See then whether you shall be master!
