leaves of grass

I will not make poems with reference to parts,

But I will make poems, songs, thoughts, with reference to ensemble,

And I will not sing with reference to a day, but with reference to all days,

And I will not make a poem nor the least part of a poem but has reference to the soul,

Because having look’d at the objects of the universe, I find there is no one nor any particle

of one but has reference to the soul.

 

Walt Whitman, from: Starting from Paumanok on Leaves of Grass
