  1. At a Window

    (Carl Sandburg)

    Give me hunger,
    O you gods that sit and give
    The world its orders.
    Give me hunger, pain and want,
    Shut me out with shame and failure
    From your doors of gold and fame,
    Give me your shabbiest, weariest hunger!

    But leave me a little love,
    A voice to speak to me in the day end,
    A hand to touch me in the dark room
    Breaking the long loneliness.
    In the dusk of day-shapes
    Blurring the sunset,
    One little wandering, western star
    Thrust out from the changing shores of shadow.
    Let me go to the window,
    Watch there the day-shapes of dusk
    And wait and know the coming
    Of a little love.

    Carl Sandburg was born in Galesburg, Illinois, on January 6, 1878. His poetry collections include Harvest Poems (Harcourt, Brace, 1950), Cornhuskers (Henry Holt, 1918), and Chicago Poems (Henry Holt, 1916).
    He died on July 22, 1967, in Flat Rock, North Carolina.
