Midwinter Spring


Grass clutches at the dark dirt with finger holds.
Let it be blue grass, barley, rye or wheat,
Let it be button weed or butter and eggs,
Let it be Johnny-jump-ups springing clean blue streaks.
Grassroots down under put fingers into dark dirt.

-- Carl Sandburg

  1. A very nice picture album. If you haven't stop at Sandburg's home in Flat Rock, NC some time. It is still maintained by the NPS as a working dairy goat farm.
