Walt Whitman: The Most Spiritual Poems

I will make the poems of materials, for I think they
    are to be the most spiritual poems,
And I will make the poems
    of my body and of mortality,
For I think I shall then supply myself with the poems
    of my soul and of immmortality.

              –Walt Whitman,
                    from “Starting from Paumanok”
