Editorial note: It is possible that this manuscript is an early draft of lines from the poem that was eventually titled "Salut au Monde!," first published as "Poem of Salutation" in the 1856 edition of Leaves of Grass. The apparent connection to "Poem of Salutation" makes the likely date of composition before 1856. This manuscript is pasted down, making the verso inaccessible.
