Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Cornhuskers.  1918.
 
81. Baby Face
 
 
WHITE MOON comes in on a baby face.
The shafts across her bed are flimmering.
 
Out on the land White Moon shines,
Shines and glimmers against gnarled shadows,
All silver to slow twisted shadows        5
Falling across the long road that runs from the house.
 
Keep a little of your beauty
And some of your flimmering silver
For her by the window to-night
Where you come in, White Moon.        10
