Calls
By Carl Sandburg
 
From “Smoke Nights”

BECAUSE I have called to you
as the flame flamingo calls,
or the want of a spotted hawk
is called—
        because in the dusk        5
the warblers shoot the running
waters of short songs to the
homecoming warblers—
                  because
the cry here is wing to wing        10
and song to song—
 
      I am waiting,
waiting with the flame flamingo,
the spotted hawk, the running water
warbler—        15
        waiting for you.
