Dogheads by Carl Sandburg
AMONG the grassroots
In the moonlight, who comes circling,
red tongues and high noses?
Is one of â€™em Buck and one of â€™em
In the moonlight, who are they, cross-legged,
telling their stories over and over?
Is one of â€™em Martin Eden and one of â€™em Larsen the Wolf?
Let an epitaph read:
He loved the straight eyes of dogs and the strong heads of men.
