Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
102. Follies
 
 
      SHAKEN,
The blossoms of lilac,
  And shattered,
The atoms of purple.
Green dip the leaves,        5
  Darker the bark,
Longer the shadows.
 
Sheer lines of poplar
Shimmer with masses of silver
And down in a garden old with years        10
And broken walls of ruin and story,
Roses rise with red rain-memories.
      May!
  In the open world
The sun comes and finds your face,        15
  Remembering all.
