Not Everyday an Aurora Borealis for Your Birthday : A Love Poem. It is because I love you I give you for your birthday present the aurora borealis" begins this ed poem by quintessential American poet Carl Sandburg. The brief text, designed with the air of a turn-of-the-century love letter, tells of a lovestruck young man who struggles to bring the "shimmering swimmering" northern lights to the front porch of his beloved.
by Carl Sandburg & illustrated by Anita Lobel. In this poem, a near-abstract thing is given, the aurora borealis, to the writer's love, & high into the sky, that fine big stack of shimmering swimmering lights, that good old reliable aurora borealis. Lobel's interpretation owes something to Cooper Edens's If You're Afraid of the Dark, Remember the Night Rainbow, portraying the poetic lines literally so that the light show is depicted as a pile of bladders of color delivered to a woman's doorstep.

Carl Sandburg mastered both poetry and prose, something to do with him being a journalist. I find him very readable. Thanks for your agreement Chuck. Not often someone agrees with me. Chuck Isner. I must agree with Michael Walker: Sandburg is still underrated. I fell in love with Sandberg at 17 when my dad recited the first stanza of Chicago to me from memory. He had memorized it about 30 years earlier in high school. He also won a Pulitzer Prize for his 3 volume biography about Abraham Lincoln
