    Carl Sandburg
    “Tell him solitude is creative if he is strong
    and the final decisions are made in silent rooms.
    Tell him to be different from other people
    if it comes natural and easy being different.
    Let him have lazy days seeking his deeper motives.
    Let him seek deep for where he is a born natural.
    Then he may understand Shakespeare
    and the Wright brothers, Pasteur, Pavlov,
    Michael Faraday and free imaginations
    Bringing changes into a world resenting change.
    He will be lonely enough
    to have time for the work
    he knows as his own.”
    Carl Sandburg, The People, Yes

    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 good-bye.
    Let the stars and songs go.
    Let the faces and years go.
    Loosen your hands and say good-bye.”
    Carl Sandburg

    Carl Sandburg
    “Let your heart look
    on white sea spray
    and be lonely.

    Love is a fool star.

    You and a ring of stars
    may mention my name
    and then forget me.

    Love is a fool star.”

    Carl Sandburg
    “Come clean with a child heart
    Laugh as peaches in the summer wind
    Let rain on a house roof be a song
    Let the writing on your face
    be a smell of apple orchards on late June.”
    Carl Sandburg, Honey and Salt
