Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Cornhuskers.  1918.
 
89. New Feet
 
 
EMPTY battlefields keep their phantoms.
Grass crawls over old gun wheels
And a nodding Canada thistle flings a purple
Into the summer’s southwest wind,
Wrapping a root in the rust of a bayonet,        5
Reaching a blossom in rust of shrapnel.
