๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Oneโ€™s-self I sing, by Walt Whitman

ONE'S-SELF I sing, a simple separate person,
Yet utter the word Democratic, the word En-Masse.

Of physiology from top to toe I sing,
Not physiognomy alone nor brain alone is worthy for the Muse, I say the Form complete is worthier far,
The Female equally with the Male I sing.

Of Life immense in passion, pulse, and power,
Cheerful, for freest action form'd under the laws divine,
The Modern Man I sing.

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Eu canto o individuo, de Walt Whitman

Eu canto o indivรญduo, um simples indivรญduo, 
E ao mesmo tempo eu pronuncio a palavra democrata, a palavra massa.

Da fisiologia eu canto, da cabeรงa aos pรฉs,
nรฃo sรณ a fisionomia nem o cรฉrebro sรณ sรฃo dignos da musa, eu digo que a forma completa vale muito mais,
o feminino como o masculino eu canto.

Da imensa vida em paixรฃo, impulso e poder,
alegre, para a aรงรฃo mais livre formada sob as leis divinas,
o homem moderno eu canto.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Io canto lโ€™individuo, di Walt Whitman

Io canto lโ€™individuo, una semplice persona individuale, 
E allo stesso tempo pronuncio la parola Democratico, la parola massa.

Della fisiologia io canto, dalla testa ai piedi,
non solo la fisionomia nรฉ il cervello da solo sono degni della musa, dico che la forma completa รจ di gran lunga piรน degna,
la femmina allo stesso modo del maschio io canto.

Della vita immensa in passione, impulso e potere, allegra, per la piรน libera azione formata sotto le leggi divine,
l'uomo moderno io canto.
