Song of Myself
by Walt Whitman

Section 9 Summary

Get out the microscope, because we’re going through this poem line-by-line.
  • From the city, Whitman now goes to the countryside, to help carry the harvest ("sagging mow").
  • He rides on top of the hay in a cart and then jumps off to roll around in the grass. Fun!
  • This section is innocent and idyllic compared to images in Section 8.
  • He's like a happy kid exploring the world for the first time.
