This is a 36-second wax cylinder recording of what is thought to be Whitman's voice reading four lines from the poem "America". Text and audio from http://www.whitmanarchive.org/

AMERICA - WALT WHITMAN

Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear'd, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
[A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair'd in the adamant of Time.]
