Treasure Island

Carl Sandburg

(6 January 1878 – 22 July 1967 / Illinois)

Dust


Here is dust remembers it was a rose
one time and lay in a woman's hair.
Here is dust remembers it was a woman
one time and in her hair lay a rose.
Oh things one time dust, what else now is it
you dream and remember of old days?
