Poem by Whitman, published in Leaves of Grass (1856) as “Bunch Poem,” included in “Children of Adam” (1860), and given its present title in 1867. It illustrates the author's pantheism and his amorous hyper-sensitivity by a catalogue of vital experiences—“the real poems, (what we call poems being merely pictures).”
