Contents: Song of the open road --
One's-self I sing --
I hear America singing --
To you --
In cabin'd ships at sea --
Starting from Paumanok --
Song of myself --
I sing the body electric --
Out of the rolling ocean the crowd --
Whoever you are holding me now in hand --
Once I pass'd through a populous city --
Sometimes with one I love --
Of the terrible doubt of appearances --
The base of all metaphysics --
Salut au monde! --
Song of the broad-axe --
Crossing Brooklyn Ferry --
Ah poverties, wincings, and sulky retreats --
Song of the answerer --
When I read the book --
A song for occupations --
Me imperturbe --
Year that trembled and reel'd beneath me --
Beat! Beat! Drums! --
Rise O days from your fathomless deeps --
Long, too long America --
Ethiopia saluting the colors --
A march in the ranks hard-prest, and the road unknown --
Thick-sprinkled bunting --
The wound-dresser --
Give me the splendid silent Sun --
By blue Ontario's shore --
Pioneers! O pioneers! --
Beginners --
To the states --
To you --
Years of the modern --
When I hear the learn'd astronomer --
Passage to India --
Ashes of soldiers --
To a certain civilian --
This dust was once the man --
When lilacs last in the dooryard bloom'd --
O Captain! My Captain! --
The last invocation --
What place is besieged? --
Whispers of heavenly death --
Out of the cradle endlessly rocking --
The return of the heroes --
As I ponder'd in silence --
Gods --
Song of the exposition --
Thou Mother with thy equal brood --
The mystic trumpeter --
Song of the redwood-tree --
Song of the universal --
To a locomotive in winter --
To the man-of-war bird --
Great are the myths --
The dalliance of the eagles --
To thee old cause --
