Crossing Ohio When Poppies
- by Carl Sandburg
Go away. Leave the high
winds of May
blowing over the fields of grape vines
near the northwest corner of Pennsylvania.
Leave the doorstep peonies
pushing high bosoms at passers- by
in northern Ohio towns in May.
Leave the boys flying light blue kites
on a deep blue sky; and the yellow, the
yellow spilling over the drinking rims
of the buttercups, piling their yellows
into foam blown sea rims of yellow;
Go away; go to New York,
Broadway, Fifth Avenue, glass
lights and leaves, glass faces,
Pick me poppies in Ohio, mother.
Pick me poppies in the back yard
May going, poppies coming, summer humming:
make it a poppy summer, mother; the leaves
sing in the silk, the leaves sing a tawny red
gold; seven sunsets saved themselves
to be here now.
Pick me poppies, mother; go, May; wash me,
summer; shoot up this back yard in Ashtabula,
shoot it up, give us a daylight fireworks in
Ohio, burn it up with tawny red
