Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
90. Under the Harvest Moon
 
 
  UNDER the harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden nights,
Death, the gray mocker,        5
Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend
Who remembers.
 
  Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson        10
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,        15
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
