by Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

As Adam, early in the morning
Language: English 
As Adam, early in the morning,
Walking forth from the bower, refresh'd with sleep;
Behold me where I pass -- hear my voice -- approach,
Touch me -- touch the palm of your hand to my Body as I pass;
Be not afraid of my Body.
