Analysis and comments on Clean Curtains by Carl Sandburg

Comment 1 of 1, added on September 14th, 2009 at 1:15 PM.

I remember this poem from high school. (I'm now almost 80) It helped me
throughout life not to give in to my surroundings. In every situation I
fought to have "clean curtains"..(good imagery)..and to never give up!
.....memorize some bit of verse??????
