I Hear America Singing

BY WALT WHITMAN

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.
Have a safe and wondrous free Fourth of July…….monos en theos….jim

eah yeah yeah, I know another Happy Birthday America post. My email was filled with them this morning.I think of apple pie, hot dogs, chevrolet and baseball.90% of the emails I got had photos of fireworks, how appropriate.This country has no shortage of firework displays, and I am not talking of those that are launched into our otherwise peacefull evening skies as a celebration.It is the fireworks that seem to be launched from the pundits on the mountains to the left and to the right.I feel stuck in this vast valley in the middle looking for cover and protection.I feel safer from attack from the outside than I do from the division on the inside that is having the same effect.In the words of the late Rodney King, “can’t we all just get along.”Say grace before you eat your hot dog, pray for the United to be put back in the States.Enjoy the fireworks on your journey††††††nada te turbe††††††††jim

Yeah yeah yeah, I know another Happy Birthday America post. My email was filled with them this morning.

I think of apple pie, hot dogs, chevrolet and baseball.

90% of the emails I got had photos of fireworks, how appropriate.

This country has no shortage of firework displays, and I am not talking of those that are launched into our otherwise peacefull evening skies as a celebration.

It is the fireworks that seem to be launched from the pundits on the mountains to the left and to the right.

I feel stuck in this vast valley in the middle looking for cover and protection.

I feel safer from attack from the outside than I do from the division on the inside that is having the same effect.

In the words of the late Rodney King, “can’t we all just get along.”

Say grace before you eat your hot dog, pray for the United to be put back in the States.

Enjoy the fireworks on your journey††††††nada te turbe††††††††jim
