A-Z Challenge: Carl Sandburg

Published 03rd April 2014 by viewsofpreethib

3rd Day for the A-Z Challenge and the letter is “C”.  I decided to choose  the poet “Carl Sandburg” and his poem called  “Dream Girl”.

The title of this poem reminds me of a song called “Dream Girl” from a very old  Bollywood movie.

*I know, I know you must be humming the song now* 😉


Dream Girl

You will come one day in a waver of love,
Tender as dew, impetuous as rain,
The tan of the sun will be on your skin,
The purr of the breeze in your murmuring speech,
You will pose with a hill-flower grace.

You will come, with your slim, expressive arms,
A poise of the head no sculptor has caught
And nuances spoken with shoulder and neck,
Your face in a pass-and-repass of moods
As many as skies in delicate change
Of cloud and blue and flimmering sun.

You may not come, O girl of a dream,
We may but pass as the world goes by
And take from a look of eyes into eyes,
A film of hope and a memoried day.

by Carl Sandburg
