Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
V. Mist Forms
48. Shagbark Hickory
  
IN the moonlight under a shag-bark hickory tree
Watching the yellow shadows melt in hoof-pools,
Listening to the yes and the no of a woman’s hands,
I kept my guess why the night was glad.
  
The night was lit with a woman’s eyes.        5
The night was crossed with a woman’s hands,
The night kept humming an undersong.
