Stedman and Hutchinson, comps.  A Library of American Literature:
An Anthology in Eleven Volumes.  1891.
Vols. IX–XI: Literature of the Republic, Part IV., 1861–1889
 
On a Great Poet’s Obscurity
By Robert Underwood Johnson (1853–1937)
 
WHAT means his line? You say none knows?
  Yet one perhaps may learn—in time:
For, sure, could life be told in prose
  There were no need at all for rhyme.
 
Alike two waters blunt the sight—        5
  The muddy shallow and the sea;
Here every current leads aright
  To deeps where lucent wonders be.
