Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
V. Mist Forms
22. Peach Blossoms
  
WHAT cry of peach blossoms
  let loose on the air today
I heard with my face thrown
  in the pink-white of it all?
  in the red whisper of it all?        5
  
What man I heard saying:
  Christ, these are beautiful!
  
And Christ and Christ was in his mouth,
  over these peach blossoms?
