In "I Hear America Singing" you can hear that it shows that the people in
america love to sing to their country and to their nobel jobs even with low
wages and hard times the people af america will always enjoy living in
their country and enjoy singing to their beautiful America.

I think that the poem"I hear America Singing" is a great poem because it
shows that people back then were happy to get any job, but today people are
non-conformists at what they do for a living.

The poem "I hear America singing" was too patriotic it had too many words
that only true americans could read, but its showing that these people are
happy as long as they are in the country and not caring about how they
treat them.

IN "I HEAR AMERICA SINGING" I THINK THAT THIS POEM DOESN'T MAKE SENSE
BECAUSE IT'S WRITTEN LIKE IN THE OLD FASHINED WAY WITH WEIRD WORDS.THE POET
DIDN'T REALLY MAKE A POINT.

In the poem "I Hear America Singing Whitman makes me think that everybody
here started slow and in the end they were the richest man, they loved
working because they were americans, but if hw were alive today he would
say that everything has changed. Now everybody doesn't care,they not
patriac because now it's all about white people and they forgey evrybody
else

what i thought about the poem "I Hear America Singing" was that it was
enjoyable. I think he was trying to say that having a good job to go to
everyday is enjoying. I also think that he's trying to say that jobs are
not always bad there sometimes wonderful. I also think he's trying to say
sing about what you have instead of showing it off to everyone.

I BELIEVE THAT " I HEAR AMERICA SINGING' IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT WORK
VERY HARD DOING THEIR JOB EVERY DAY, AND ARE HAPPY TO BE WORKING FOR GREAT
COUNTRY LIKE AMERICA.
