Walt Whitman

I Will Take An Egg Out Of The Robin's Nest

Walter "Walt" Whitman was an American poet, essayist and journalist.






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 the world;
  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.
