Carl Sandburg - In Tall Grass

BEES and a honeycomb in the dried head of a horse in a pasture corner—a skull in the tall grass and a buzz and a buzz of
the yellow honey-hunters.
 
And I ask no better a winding sheet
            (over the earth and under the sun.)
 
Let the bees go honey-hunting with yellow blur of wings in the dome of my head, in the rumbling, singing arch of my skull.
 
Let there be wings and yellow dust and the drone of dreams of honey—who loses and remembers?—who keeps and forgets?
 
In a blue sheen of moon over the bones and under the hanging honeycomb the bees come home and the bees sleep.
