i hear america singing
by walt whitman
i hear america singing, the varied carols i hear,
those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
the carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
the mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
the boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand
singing on the steamboat deck,
the shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
the wood-cutter's song, the ploughboy's on his way in the morning, or
at noon intermission or at sundown,
the delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of
the girl sewing or washing,
each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
the day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows,
singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

Complacent: Smug/Uncritical satisfaction with oneself or achievements.

The extract is taken from the poem "Verses Upon The Burning Of Our House, July 10th, 1666" by Anne Bradstreet. The speaker in this poem is the poet herself.
The poem is about the real-life experience by the poet when her house got burned down on July 10th, 1666 and lost her possessions in it. Besides her experience, the speaker also develops a sense of spirituality and the love of God towards His people. The poet was a Puritan and has developed that emotions in the poem also by looking a different way towards the loss of "material-possession."
Blithe means happy. Such as whenever my brother gets two candy bars, he is blithe. :)
Blithe means showing a casual and cheerful indifference considered to be callous or improper.
Here is an example:
"a blithe disregard for the rules of the road"
By definition, it would be "Complacent and apathetic."
Blithe: A casual and cheerful indifference; Happy or joyous.
Complacent: Smug/uncritical satisfaction with oneself or achievements.
Apathetic: Showing/feeling no interest or concern.
By context of the poem, it seems everyone is peacefully indifferent and happy with what they are doing.
C) complacent and apathetic
