Walt Whitman - Inscription.

SMALL is the theme of the following Chant, yet the greatest—namely,
	One’s-Self—that wondrous thing a simple, separate person. That, for the use of
	New World, I sing. 
Man’s physiology complete, from top to toe, I sing. Not physiognomy alone, nor brain
	alone, is worthy for the muse;—I say the Form complete is worthier far. The female
	with the male, I sing, 
Nor cease at the theme of One’s-Self. I speak the word of the modern, the word
My Days I sing, and the Lands—with interstice I knew of hapless War. 
O friend whoe’er you are, at last arriving hither to commence, I feel through every
	the pressure of your hand, which I return. And thus upon our journey link’d together
	us go.
