Augustin S. Macdonald, comp.  A Collection of Verse by California Poets.  1914.
By Bernard Westermann
THERE is Amida, sublime and high,
  Who far in a Daimyo’s garden stands,
  Eyes half closed, he has crossed his hands;
He waits for nothing, he cannot die.
He has tasted and drunk of the wines of life,        5
  Of every passion and conquered each,
Till a silent power has changed the strife
  To the sentient calm that the soul may reach.
