Walt Whitman

You Shall Possess is set to a poem by Walt Whitman.

"You shall possess
The origin of all poems.
You shall possess the good of earth and the sun.
There are mil-lions of of suns left.
You shall no longer take things
at second or third hand,
nor look through the eyes of the dead,
nor feed on specters in books.
You shall listen to all sides
and filter them from yourself. "
