What I like is the story Carl Sandburg Tells from the 1870s about Leo Tolstoy On a wild night somewhere high up in The Caucasus Mountains, by a crackling campfire, Spellbinding an audience of local herdsmen, Holding them captive with his words, Unwinding Lincoln's unlikely life, touching Them deeply enough so that his portrait From somewhere had to be found so they Could take and hold and remember a few Threads of his legacy in their windswept And foreign land half a world away.
