Song of the Open Road
for mixed chorus and piano

Walt Whitman

Song of the Open Road is set to a poem by Walt Whitman.

"Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune—I myself am good fortune;
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing, 5
Strong and content, I travel the open road. "
