  1. Pennsylvania

    by Carl Sandburg

    I have been in Pennsylvania,
    In the Monongahela and Hocking Valleys.

    In the blue Susquehanna
    On a Saturday morning
    I saw a mounted constabulary go by,
    I saw boys playing marbles.
    Spring and the hills laughed.

    And in places
    Along the Appalachian chain,
    I saw steel arms handling coal and iron,
    And I saw the white-cauliflower faces
    Of miner's wives waiting for the men to come home from the day's work.

    I made color studies in crimson and violet
    Over the dust and domes of culm at sunset.
