Prose in Jewelry: “Come, Said My Soul”
“Come Said My Soul,” a poem by Walt Whitman, appears in later editions of Leaves of Grass as an epigraph. The inspiring poem celebrates the body and imagines itself continuing to enjoy, love, and experience the physical world even after the body’s actual death. The soul feels at one with the body — “Signing for Soul and Body, set to them my name.”
Come, said my Soul Such verses for my Body let us write, (for we are one,) That should I after death invisibly return, Or, long, long hence, in other spheres, There to some group of mates the chants resuming, (Tallying Earth’s soil, trees, winds, tumultuous waves,) Ever with pleas’d smiles I may keep on, Ever and ever yet the verses owning — as, first, I here and now, Signing for Soul and Body, set to them my name, Walt Whitman
