I love this poem! it gives me hope in some way, even though i am not that red-headed girl. That somewhere is my dream man; And not to worry because someday he will find me or you.

This is my absolute favorite poem in the world. The tone of wonder and amaze is beautiful and quite moving. I love the fact that Sandburg focuses on one seemingly unimportant individual and magnifies her until she occupies the entire universe and her lovely, jovial, lovable prescence is displayed for all the world to see.
