Carl Sandburg and Goats

Carl Sandburg once said, “Goats are friendly. You can talk with them. A cow doesn’t know what you are saying. But these goats come up very quietly and brush against you, as if to say, Isn’t life good?”  

Photographer KHammond captured the oldest goat on the family farm, in Missouri, named Charlie and shared it with SwittersB

Carl Sandburg and his wife Paula raised varieties of goats on their family farm. Sandburg spent the last two decades of his life on the farm and completed a large portion of his works while living there. Below is a photo from Life Magazine (Feb. 31, 1938 issue) showing Carl Sandburg and is daughter Helga singing to goats inside their farm house. Goats might have endearing qualities.

Dusk

DREAMS in the dusk,
Only dreams closing the day
And with the day’s close going back
To the gray things, the dark things,
The far, deep things of dreamland.

Dreams, only dreams in the dusk,
Only the old remembered pictures
Of lost days when the day’s loss
Wrote in tears the heart’s loss.

Tears and loss and broken dreams
May find your heart at dusk.

Carl Sandburg
