Cover one, Cover all. The poem that I wanted to respond to is “Grass” by Carl Sandburg because it has the deepest emotional connection to the reader out of all the other poems in the book. Sandburg starts off by highlighting the importance to keep all of the people in mind that are sent off to war and their lives are taken. Many people today take all the freedom that Americans have for grated, not only do they think that there is a place that is more free than America they don’t respect all the lives that were taken to have this great place we live in today. Sandburg never wants people to forget about the lives that were taken for a greater cause to give rights, equality, and freedom to everyone.
