I Hear America Singing

I hear America singing the varied carols I hear
Those of mechanics each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work or leaves off work
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench the hatter singing as he stands
The wood-cutter's song the ploughboy's on his way in the morning or at noon intermission or at sundown
The delicious singing of the mother or of the young wife at work or of the girl sewing or washing
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else
The day what belongs to the day - at night the party of young fellows robust friendly
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
