Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Smoke and Steel. 1922.
  
IX. Haze
12. Pods
  
PEA pods cling to stems.
Neponset, the village,
Clings to the Burlington railway main line.
Terrible midnight limiteds roar through
Hauling sleepers to the Rockies and Sierras.        5
The earth is slightly shaken
And Neponset trembles slightly in its sleep.
