Oneâ€™s-Self I Sing. by Walt Whitman
ONEâ€™S-SELF I singâ€”a simple, separate Person;
Yet utter the word Democratic, the word En-masse.
Of Physiology from top to toe I sing;
Not physiognomy alone, nor brain alone, is worthy for the museâ€”I say the
Form complete is worthier far;
The Female equally with the male I sing.
Of Life immense in passion, pulse, and power,
Cheerfulâ€”for freest action formâ€™d, under the laws divine,
The Modern Man I sing.
