Blue Ridge

by Carl Sandburg, 1920

Born a million years ago you stay here a million years... watching the women come and live and be laid away... you and they thin-gray thin-dusk lovely.
 So it goes: either the early morning lights are lovely or the early morning star.
 I am glad I have seen racehorses, women, mountains.
