Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
952. Anonymous
 
By John Banister Tabb
 
 
ANONYMOUS—nor needs a name
To tell the secret whence the flame,
With light, and warmth, and incense, came
A new creation to proclaim.
 
So was it when, His labor done,        5
God saw His work, and smiled thereon:
His glory in the picture shone,
But name upon the canvas, none.
