Carl Sandburg
printer friendly version

I ASKED the professors who teach the meaning of life to tell me
what is happiness.
And I went to famous executives who boss the work of thousands
of men.
They all shook their heads and gave me a smile as though I was
trying to fool with them
And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along the Desplaines
And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with their women
and children and a keg of beer and an accordion.

("Chicago Poems." 1916)
