THE THINKER By Berton Bhaley Back of the beating hammer By which the steel is wrought, Back of the workshop's clamor The seeker may find the Thought Of iron and steam and steel, That rises above disaster And tramples it under heel! The drudge may fret and tinker Or labor with dusty blows, But back of him stands the Thinker, The clear-eyed man who Knows; For into each plow or saber, Each piece and part and whole, Must go the Brains of Labor, Which gives the work a soul I Back of the motors humming, Back of the belts that sing, Back of the hammers drumming, Back of the cranes that swing, There is the eye which scans them Watching through stress and strain, There is the Mind which plans them--Back of the brawn, the Brain! Might of the roaring boiler, Force of the engine's thrust, Strength of the sweating toiler, Greatly in these we trust. But back of them stands the Schemer, The Thinker who drives things through; Back of the job--the Dreamer Who's making the dream come true! From Songs of a Workaday World, by Berton Braley.
