Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Cornhuskers.  1918.
 
35. Sixteen Months
 
 
ON the lips of the child Janet float changing dreams.
It is a thin spiral of blue smoke,
A morning campfire at a mountain lake.
 
On the lips of the child Janet,
Wisps of haze on ten miles of corn,        5
Young light blue calls to young light gold of morning.
