Carl Sandburg - Pennsylvania

I HAVE been in Pennsylvania,
In the Monongahela and the Hocking Valleys.
  
In the blue Susquehanna
On a Saturday morning
I saw the 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 miners’ 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.
