Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
II. People Who Must
19. Red-headed Restaurant Cashier
  
SHAKE back your hair, O red-headed girl.
Let go your laughter and keep your two proud freckles on your chin.
Somewhere is a man looking for a red-headed girl and some day maybe he will look into your eyes for a restaurant cashier and find a lover, maybe.
Around and around go ten thousand men hunting a red headed girl with two freckles on her chin.
I have seen them hunting, hunting.        5
  Shake back your hair; let go your laughter.
