To me the poem means that everyone is different and in America that is ok.
Everyone is allowed to sing their song out loud, not silenced by diversity,
"singing with open mouth." It is not necessarily singing, or workers...the
workers represent the ordinary citizen and the songs are our voices and
opinions. Even the small guys have the freedom of speech

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.

He is saying that he hear the sweet sounds of the american people while
they enjoy their day at work.

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.
