Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
322. Places
 
By Carl Sandburg
 
 
ROSES and gold
For you today,
And the flash of flying flags.
 
      I will have Ashes,
      Dust in my hair,        5
      Crushes of hoofs.
 
Your name
Fills the mouth
Of rich man and poor.
      Women bring        10
Armfuls of flowers
And throw on you.
 
      I go hungry
      Down in dreams
      And loneliness,        15
      Across the rain
      To slashed hills
Where men wait and hope for me.
