Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

303. Primeval my Love for the Woman I Love


PRIMEVAL my love for the woman I love, 
O bride! O wife! more resistless, more enduring than I can tell, the thought of you! 
Then separate, as disembodied, the purest born, 
The ethereal, the last athletic reality, my consolation, 
I ascend—I float in the regions of your love, O man,         5
O sharer of my roving life.
