Hemlock and Cedar by Carl Sandburg
THIN sheets of blue smoke among white slabs â€¦ near the shingle mill â€¦ winter morning.
Falling of a dry leaf might be heard â€¦ circular steel tears through a log.
Slope of woodland â€¦ brown â€¦ soft â€¦ tinge of blue such as pansy eyes.
Farther, field fires â€¦ funnel of yellow smoke â€¦ spellings of other yellow in corn stubble.
Bobsled on a down-hill road â€¦ February snow mud â€¦ horses steaming â€¦ Oscar the driver sings ragtime under a spot of red seen a mile â€¦ the red wool yarn of Oscarâ€™s stocking cap is seen from the shingle mill to the ridge of hemlock and cedar.
