Corrections to Poems in Periodicals Section

I've made a few corrections to the Poems in Periodicals section to address errors identified by Ken Price and Wendy Katz:

1. The link for the poem "The Winding-Up" was resulting in an error message because of an ambiguous rule match in the stylesheet. I fixed th is and the poem now displays.

2. I added links in the entries for two poems in the bibliography of Whitman's poems published in periodicals, "A Sketch" and "No Turning Back."
