I hear American singing

The protagonists of this poem are all the categories of American workers who are trying to build a better society . In every line we have one different content. From the first line we can see individuality and togetherness. We have a lot of simple workers , working-class people that built America . The I of the prophet became MYSELF ( the poet put the I everytime in discussion ) . End of the day : the day was proficuous. The America is the young nation. Everybody singing . They know that they are building a new nation. We have the celebration of manual works ; the people are simple ; importance of both sex ; happiness and freedom.

"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".
