"The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch if from our neighbors, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all."

Theme in Yellow
 Carl Sandburg

I Spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o'-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know
I am fooling.
