Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
9. Clark Street Bridge
 
 
DUST of the feet
And dust of the wheels,
Wagons and people going,
All day feet and wheels.
 
Now…        5
..Only stars and mist
A lonely policeman,
Two cabaret dancers,
Stars and mist again,
No more feet or wheels,        10
No more dust and wagons.
 
    Voices of dollars
    And drops of blood
    .  .  .  .  .
    Voices of broken hearts,
    ..Voices singing, singing,        15
    ..Silver voices, singing,
    Softer than the stars,
    Softer than the mist.
