Carl Sandburg

Here you will find the Poem Bas-Relief of poet Carl Sandburg


Five geese deploy mysteriously. 
Onward proudly with flagstaffs, 
Hearses with silver bugles, 
Bushes of plum-blossoms dropping 
For ten mystic web-feet-- 
Each his own drum-major, 
Each charged with the honor 
Of the ancient goose nation, 
Each with a nose-length surpassing 
The nose-lengths of rival nations. 
Somberly, slowly, unimpeachably, 
Five geese deploy mysteriously.
