Walt Whitman’s Birthday

calcMay 31, 2022

"I bequeath myself to the dirt, to grow from the grass I love;
If you want me again, look for me under your boot-soles.” 

Writer Walt Whitman was born on this day in 1819. He is often considered the founder of free verse poetry, and his work Leaves of Grass has inspired and influenced generations of poets since it was first published in 1855.
