Carl Sandburg - Old-fashioned Requited Love

I HAVE ransacked the encyclopedias
And slid my fingers among topics and titles
Looking for you.
  
And the answer comes slow.
There seems to be no answer.
  
I shall ask the next banana peddler the who and the why of it.
  
Or—the iceman with his iron tongs gripping a clear cube in summer sunlight—maybe he will know.
