Can someone please help me interpret the poem "The Plowboy" by Carl Sandburg?
Q. Plowboy after the last red sunset glimmer, Black on the line of a low hill rise, Formed into moving shadows, I saw A plowboy and two horses lined against the gray, Plowing in the dusk the last furrow. The turf had a gleam of brown, And smell of soil was in the air, And, cool and moist, a haze of April. I shall remember you long, Plowboy and horses against the sky in shadow. I shall remember you and the picture You made for me, Turning the turf in the dusk And haze of an April gloaming.

What is the meaning of the poem, "Monotone" by Carl Sandburg?
Q. "Monotone" by Carl Sandburg The monotone of the rain is beautiful, And the sudden rise and slow relapse Of the long multitudinous rain. The sun on the hills is beautiful, Or a captured sunset sea-flung, Bannered with fire and gold. A face I know is beautiful-- With fire and gold of sky and sea, And the peace of long warm rain.
Asked by Gina - Tue Apr 12 15:32:29 2011 - Poetry - 3 Answers - 1 Comments

A. As you probably know, a monotone is a sound that doesn't change; it doesn't get faster or slower or higher or deeper; it just stays steadily the same. So the poem is about something that persists, something that endures, something that remains the same. The first three lines of the poem say that the rain is beautiful when it falls at a steady rate, making the same consistent sound, and it's also beautiful when it changes, when it pours more fiercely for a while, and then gradually slows down. The next three lines say that the steady, long-lasting sunlight shining all day long on the hills is beautiful, and the brief, dramatic, fast-changing sunset over the ocean is also beautiful. So the first two stanzas of the poem talk about how nature… [cont.]

A. Sandburg moved to Chicago in 1912 after living in Milwaukee, where he had served as secretary to Emil Seidel, Milwaukee's Socialist mayor. Harriet Monroe, a fellow resident of Chicago, had recently founded the magazine Poetry at around this time. Monroe liked and encouraged Sandburg's plain-speaking free verse style, strongly reminiscent of Walt Whitman. Chicago Poems established Sandburg as a major figure in contemporary literature. The Chicago Poems, and its follow-up volumes of verse, Cornhuskers (1918) and Smoke and Steel (1920) represent Sandburg's attempts to found an American version of social realism, writing expansive verse in praise of American agriculture and industry. All of these tendencies are manifest in "Chicago"… [cont.]

Q. The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on. how can you relate a cat to the fog ? Thanks!
Asked by The Franchise kid - Thu Apr 3 19:42:37 2008 - Books & Authors - 2 Answers - Comments

A. One of my favorites!!! Well the fog comes slowly, so does the cat. Both appears also without noise. The feet of the cat are so soft, (please go and touch a kitty), even the feets of the tiger, but the word cat is like the word fog: simple, beutiful, clear. The fog rises just above the floor, and begins to walk slowly, tenderly, like a cat in the street, when nobody is around

Asked by Tan N - Mon Jul 19 15:55:42 2010 - Poetry - 2 Answers - Comments

A. Let's see now..first, the poem: FOG by Carl Sandburg THE fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on. Here is what the poem does. 1. It is short and to the point. Poems do not have to be long to be great. 2. It paints a picture that could be hung on a wall. It is a "word canvas." 3. It personifies the Fog. It treats the fog as if it is a "person," or in this case, an animal acting of its own will. 4. It implies the brevity of all things. Everything passes on. I do not believe that this is his greatest poem, but it may be his best-known one. Oh, and I believe you mean "magnum" opus.

The line is on page 1046 of that publisher's paperback version. You can find info. on the book through google. Cheers.
