Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
204. A Gift
 
By Amy Lowell
 
 
SEE! I give myself to you, Beloved!
My words are little jars
For you to take and put upon a shelf.
Their shapes are quaint and beautiful,
And they have many pleasant colors and lustres        5
To recommend them.
Also the scent from them fills the room
With sweetness of flowers and crushed grasses.
 
When I shall have given you the last one
You will have the whole of me,        10
But I shall be dead.
