|Senator Dick Lugar|
|Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky|
- ile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo,
- Shovel them under and let me work--
- I am the grass; I cover all.
- And pile them high at Gettysburg
- And pile them high 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.
- Let me work.
When I taught accelerated sophomore English at Fremd High School, we could talk about this poem for days! You can have your Wallace Stevens or your Marianne Moore; give me Sandburg!
Have a great Sunday! More coming soon!
