mmm-hmmm (this day)

Inspired by the phrase ‘I CELEBRATE myself, and sing myself’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

and here I am
the morning come
I rise again
I rise

the sun serves
to illuminate
this world of mine
I rise to kiss
the light

ray
by ray
and beam
by shining beam

I sing
to myself

a satisfaction
for the knowledge
that I am

for the being
that is me

I laugh
a little dance
as though a stream
a rill
across the smoothing stones

phwee
phwee-phwee
phwee phwee

I whistle to myself
oh
how I love the day

and how
I love
this day

phwee
phwee-phwee
phwee
phwee

mmm-hmmm
