Walt Whitman - As Adam, Early in the Morning.

AS Adam, early in the morning, 
Walking forth from the bower, refresh’d with sleep; 
Behold me where I pass—hear my voice—approach, 
Touch me—touch the palm of your hand to my Body as I pass; 
Be not afraid of my Body.         5

The other comment is false.
This poem is about how america is rising fresh from the depressing Civil war.
Think about it.
America was often referred to as Adam.
The poem was also written towards the end of the 1800's.
It isn't that hard to put it together
