Silver Wind

 Excerpt of a poem by Carl Sandburg:


Do you know how the dream looms?  how if summer

       Misses one of  us  the  two of us miss summer—

So I shall look for you…

In the listening  tops  of  the  hickories,  in  the  wind

       Motions of the hickory shingle leaves, in the imi-

       tations of the slow sea water on the shingle silver

       in the wind—

                  I shall look for you.
