Carl Sandburg - Cool Tombs

WHEN Abraham Lincoln was shoveled into the tombs, he forgot the copperheads and the assassin … in the dust, in the cool
And Ulysses Grant lost all thought of con men and Wall Street, cash and collateral turned ashes … in the dust, in the
cool tombs.
Pocahontas’ body, lovely as a poplar, sweet as a red haw in November or a pawpaw in May, did she wonder? does she
remember? … in the dust, in the cool tombs?
Take any streetful of people buying clothes and groceries, cheering a hero or throwing confetti and blowing tin horns …
tell me if the lovers are losers … tell me if any get more than the lovers … in the dust … in the cool tombs.
