Carl Sandburg

(6 January 1878 – 22 July 1967 / Illinois)

Letter S - Poem by Carl Sandburg

THE RIVER is gold under a sunset of Illinois.
It is a molten gold someone pours and changes.
A woman mixing a wedding cake of butter and eggs
Knows what the sunset is pouring on the river here.
The river twists in a letter S.
A gold S now speaks to the Illinois sky.
