Walt Whitman

31 May 1819 - 26 March 1892 / New York / United States

As I Watche'D The Ploughman Ploughing

AS I watch'd the ploughman ploughing,
Or the sower sowing in the fields--or the harvester harvesting,
I saw there too, O life and death, your analogies:
(Life, life is the tillage, and Death is the harvest according.)
