Heart Arithmetic

      During these days of protest and politics and pandemic, a diversion -- some playful thoughts about LOVE from poet Carl Sandburg (1878-1967).

        How Much?     by Carl Sandburg

       How much do you love me, a million bushels? 
       Oh, a lot more than that, Oh, a lot more. 
        And to-morrow maybe only half a bushel? 
        To-morrow maybe not even a half a bushel. 
        And is this your heart arithmetic?
        This is the way the wind measures the weather.
