Stars, Songs, Faces - Poem by Carl Sandburg

Gather the stars if you wish it so.
Gather the songs and keep them.
Gather the faces of women.
Gather for keeping years and years.
And then . . .
Loosen your hands, let go and say goodby.
Let the stars and songs go.
Let the faces and years go.
Loosen your hands and say goodbye.

    Gather the memories one by one
    And when no more memories exist
    It's time for this life to say goodbye
    And create memories once again
