Is there a tune that goes with the words?

Any internet recordings?

Seems like quite a ballad.

Around 69 or 70 I saw Allen Ginsberg singing William Blake and playing a harmonium, I would be suprised if Ginsberg hadn't attempted Whitman in song.

I'd like to hear Led Zeppelin give it a whack, kind of like the Immigrant Song.
