Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
84. To a Dead Man
 
 
OVER the dead line we have called to you
To come across with a word to us,
Some beaten whisper of what happens
Where you are over the dead line
Deaf to our calls and voiceless.        5
 
The flickering shadows have not answered
Nor your lips sent a signal
Whether love talks and roses grow
And the sun breaks at morning
Splattering the sea with crimson.        10
