Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
V. Mist Forms
9. Stars, Songs, Faces
  
GATHER the stars if you wish it so.
Gather the songs and keep them.
Gather the faces of women.
Gather for keeping years and years.
  
  And then …        5
Loosen your hands, let go and say good-by.
  Let the stars and songs go.
  Let the faces and years go.
  Loosen your hands and say good-by.
