Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
683. Appreciation
 
By Thomas Bailey Aldrich
 
 
TO the sea-shell’s spiral round
’T is your heart that brings the sound:
The soft sea-murmurs that you hear
Within, are captured from your ear.
 
You do poets and their song        5
A grievous wrong,
If your own soul does not bring
To their high imagining
As much beauty as they sing.
