September Poetry

"Under the harvest moon,   
When the soft silver   
Drips shimmering   
Over the garden nights,   
Death, the gray mocker,   
Comes and whispers to you   
As a beautiful friend   
Who remembers."  
-  Carl Sandburg, Under the Harvest Moon

oh my! i only remember Carl Sandburg as the author of "Rutabaga Tales" a book my dad loved to read aloud to us. Maybe I'm wrong , i need to look that up. This poem definitely is different from that. I guess he wrote for all ages.
