Excerpts from A Jubilant Song by Walt Whitman
O to make the most jubilant song!
O the joy of my spirit – it is uncaged – it darts like lightning
It is not enough to have this globe or a certain time.
I will have thousands of globes and all time.
Know’st thou the excellent joys of youth?
Joys of the ear companions and of the merry word and laughing face?
Yet O my soul supreme!
Know’st thou the joys of pensive thought?
Prophetic joys of better, loftier love’s ideals, the divine wife, the sweet, eternal, perfect comrade?
O while I live to be the ruler of life.
O to have life henceforth a poem of new joys!
To dance, clap hands, exult, shout, skip, leap, roll on, float on!
