“Summer Stars” by Carl Sandburg

Summer Stars

Bend low again, night of summer stars.
So near you are, sky of summer stars,
So near, a long-arm man can pick off stars,
Pick off what he wants in the sky bowl,
So near you are, summer stars,
So near, strumming, strumming,
                     So lazy and hum-strumming.


Carl Sandburg, 1878-1967

From Smoke and Steel (1920). This poem is in the public domain.
