‘I am the poet of the woman the same as the man’

 

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,

And what I assume you shall assume,

For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

 
Panel 1

‘A child said, What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands;  How could I answer the child?’

‘I do not know what it is any more than he.

I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven.’

– Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
