Carl Sandburg - Cadenza

THE KNEES
  of this proud woman
are bone.
  
The elbows
  of this proud woman
are bone.
  
The summer-white stars
  and the winter-white stars
never stop circling
  around this proud woman.
  
The bones
  of this proud woman
answer the vibrations
  of the stars.
  
  In summer
the stars speak deep thoughts
  In the winter
the stars repeat summer speeches.
  
The knees
  of this proud woman
know these thoughts
  and know these speeches
of the summer and winter stars.
