by Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

As I watch'd the ploughman ploughing
Language: English 
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.)
