Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Cornhuskers.  1918.
 
24. Fire-Logs
 
 
NANCY HANKS dreams by the fire;
Dreams, and the logs sputter,
And the yellow tongues climb.
Red lines lick their way in flickers.
Oh, sputter, logs.        5
      Oh, dream, Nancy.
Time now for a beautiful child.
Time now for a tall man to come.
