Poem Fix of the Day, July 5th, 2011

In college, reading Carl Sandburg was considered decidedly uncool.  Well, college is uncool.  He’s a nice and upbeat piece of Sandburg poetry for you.

Drum on your drums, batter on your banjoes,

Sob on the long cool winding saxophones.

Go to it, O jazzmen.

–Carl Sandburg, from Jazz Fantasia
