Susan, I took the liberty of adindg links to some of the references to
these poets. Thanks for mentioning. I had forgotten about Kevin Young. Of
the ones you mentioned, I am most familiar with his work. He is incredible.
I am vaguely familiar with Tracy K. Smith, but not very. I have not heard
of the others. Thanks for sharing the list.

I am guessing that the reason no one has chosen to comment on this poem is
its simplicity. Sandburg speaks of things that announce the renewal of life
and in doing so coveys the knowledge that along with these things of nature
come the assurance we too are renewed in our hope of life continuation.
