I WILL take an egg out of the robin’s nest in the orchard,
I will take a branch of gooseberries from the old bush in the garden, and go and preach to
You shall see I will not meet a single heretic or scorner,
You shall see how I stump clergymen, and confound them,
You shall see me showing a scarlet tomato, and a white pebble from the beach.
This poem by Whitman was neither written nor first published in 1900, since Whitman died in 1892. The poem first appeared in the 1860 edition of The Leaves of Grass
