Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
415. The Shadow
 
By William Carlos Williams
 
 
SOFT as the bed in the earth
Where a stone has lain—
So soft, so smooth and so cool,
Spring closes me in
With her arms and her hands.        5
 
Rich as the smell
Of new earth on a stone,
That has lain, breathing
The damp through its pores—
Spring closes me in        10
With her blossomy hair;
Brings dark to my eyes.
