A Fermilab Prairie Summer

O prairie mother, I am one of your boys.

I have loved the prairie as a man with a heart shot full of pain over love.

Here I know I will hanker after nothing so much as one more sunrise or a sky moon of fire doubled to a river moon of water.

--Carl Sandburg, "Prairie" (from "Cornhuskers," 1918)
