He came out from the house
In clean blue overalls,
To take his waiting truck --

Strong-limbed and virile,
A catch of song upon his lip,
Contentment on his brow.

Noon lunch had gladdened him,
Good food though plain, and respite brief
With wife and little ones.

He strode along erect and manly,
Competence writ large,
Laborer and citizen,
