C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Blacksmith
 
        And he sang: “Hurra for my handiwork!”
  And the red sparks lit the air;
Not alone for the blade was the bright steel made;
  And he fashioned the first ploughshare.
Chas. Mackay.    
  1
        Under a spreading chestnut tree
  The village smithy stands;
The smith a mighty man is he,
  With large and sinewy hands;
And the muscles of his brawny arms
  Are strong as iron bands.
Longfellow.    
  2
        And the smith his iron measures hammered to the anvil’s chime;
Thanking God, whose boundless wisdom makes the flowers of poesy bloom
In the forge’s dust and cinders, in the tissues of the loom.
Longfellow.
