Baby Toes

Carl Sandburg 1878 (Galesburg) – 1967 (Flat Rock)

There is a blue star, Janet,
Fifteen years’ ride from us,
If we ride a hundred miles an hour.

There is a white star, Janet,
Forty years’ ride from us,
If we ride a hundred miles an hour.

Shall we ride
To the blue star
Or the white star?
