Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
93. An Epitaph
 
By Walter de la Mare
 
 
HERE lies a most beautiful lady:
Light of step and heart was she;
I think she was the most beautiful lady
That ever was in the West Country.
But beauty vanishes; beauty passes;        5
However rare—rare it be;
And when I crumble, who will remember
This lady of the West Country?
