Augustin S. Macdonald, comp.  A Collection of Verse by California Poets.  1914.
To William Vaughn Moody
By Herbert Heron
The Poet of “The Fire Bringer”

DEAD! and we gaze, unseeing, on your bier,
  Where westward thunders roll;
But though you die, your living song is clear
  (Prometheus lights your goal);
And till we too are taken, we can hear        5
  That music from your soul!
