The house-builder at work in cities or anywhere,
  The preparatory jointing, squaring, sawing, mortising,
    The hoist-up of beams, the push of them in their places, laying them regular,
      Setting the studs by their tenons in the mortises, according as they were prepared,
        The blows of the mallets and hammers.
      - Song of the Broad-Axe (pt. III, st. 4)
        [Carpentry]

Ah, little recks the laborer,
  How near his work is holding him to God,
    The loving Laborer through space and time.
      - Song of the Exposition (I) [Labor]

Whoever you are, motion and reflection are especially for you,
  The divine ship sails the divine sea for you.
      - Song of the Rolling Earth (2) [Ships]

I swear the earth shall surely be complete to him or her who shall be complete,
  The earth remains jagged and broken only to him or her who remains jagged and broken.
      - Song of the Rolling Earth (3) [Life]

In the broad earth of ours,
  Amid the measureless grossness and the slag,
    Enclosed and safe within its central heart,
      Nestles the seed perfection.
      - Song of the Universal [Perfection]

I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.
      - Starting from Pawmano (no. 52) [World]

Nothing can happen more beautiful than death.
      - Stating from Paumanok (no. 12) [Death]

The butcher in his killing clothes.
      - The Workingmen (pt. VI, st. 32)
        [Butchering]

When lilacs last in the door-year bloom'd,
  And the great star early droop'd in the western sky in the night,
    I mourn'd--and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.
      - When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom'd
         (I, Leaves of Grass) [Lilacs]

With every leaf a miracle . . . and from this bush in the door-yard,
  With delicate-colour'd blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green
    A sprig with its flower, I break.
      - When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom'd
         (III, Leaves of Grass) [Lilacs]
