Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
47. Under a Hat Rim
 
 
WHILE the hum and the hurry
Of passing footfalls
Beat in my ear like the restless surf
Of a wind-blown sea,
A soul came to me        5
Out of the look on a face.
 
Eyes like a lake
Where a storm-wind roams
Caught me from under
The rim of a hat.        10
    I thought of a midsea wreck
    and bruised fingers clinging
    to a broken state-room door.
