Walt Whitman - To a Common Prostitute.

BE composed—be at ease with me—I am Walt Whitman, liberal and lusty as Nature; 
Not till the sun excludes you, do I exclude you; 
Not till the waters refuse to glisten for you, and the leaves to rustle for you, do my
    words
	refuse
	to glisten and rustle for you. 
  
My girl, I appoint with you an appointment—and I charge you that you make preparation
    to
	be
	worthy to meet me, 
And I charge you that you be patient and perfect till I come.
  
Till then, I salute you with a significant look, that you do not forget me.
