Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
19. Song of the Souls Set Free
 
By Walter Conrad Arensberg
 
 
WRAP the earth in cloudy weather
For a shroud.
We have slipped the earthly tether,
We’re above the cloud.
Peep and draw the cloud together,        5
Peep upon the bowed.
 
What can they be bowing under,
Wild and wan?
Peep, and draw the cloud asunder,
Peep, and wave a dawn.        10
It will make them rise and wonder
Whether we are gone.
