It is said that everyone marches to the beat of a drum. There is a soundtrack that individuals live their lives too.

So it's not just the art of poetry that's at stake in that opening line, but the commercial value of poetry as well.

LEAVES OF GRASS By Walt Whitman Come, said my soul, Such verses for my Body let us write, (for we are one,) That should I after return, Or, long, long hence, in other spheres, There to some group of mates the chants resuming, (Tallying Earth’s soil, trees, winds, tumultuous waves,) Ever with pleas’d smile I may keep on, Ever and ever yet the verses owning—as, first, I here and now.
