Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
V. Mist Forms
41. Mist Forms
  
THE SHEETS of night mist travel a long valley.
I know why you came at sundown in a scarf mist.
  
What was it we touched asking nothing and asking all?
How many times can death come and pay back what we saw?
  
In the oath of the sod, the lips that swore,        5
In the oath of night mist, nothing and all,
A riddle is here no man tells, no woman.
