Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
VII. Passports
1. Smoke Rose Gold
  
THE DOME of the capitol looks to the Potomac river.
  Out of haze over the sunset,
  Out of a smoke rose gold:
One star shines over the sunset.
Night takes the dome and the river, the sun and the smoke rose gold,        5
The haze changes from sunset to star.
The pour of a thin silver struggles against the dark.
A star might call: It’s a long way across.
