The Great Hunt
I never knew any more beautiful than you:
I have hunted you under my thoughts,
I have broken down under the wind
And into the roses looking for you.
I shall never find any greater than you.
Carl Sandburg, Chicago Poems, 1916
Carl Sandburg wrote these words about his wife, Lilian Steichen Sandburg, whom he met in 1907.
