Carl Sandburg Signed Poem
"WINNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED AFTER THE AUCTION ENDS BY THE AUCTIONEER ONCE ALL BIDS HAVE BEEN PROCESSED TO DETERMINE THE WINNER FOR EACH LOT."
Poignant signed copy of Carl Sandburg's poem, ''Grass.'' Signed in bold, large letters ''Carl Sandburg'' at the conclusion, poem reads in full, ''Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo. Shovel them under at Ypres and Verdun. Shovel them under / and let me work. Two years, Ten years, and passengers ask / the conductor: What place is this? Where are we now? I am the grass.'' A beautiful signed reminder of nature and time's power to heal our history and fade our memories. 5'' x 8.25'' single page is in near fine condition.
