William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. (1878–1962).  Anthology of Magazine Verse for 1920.  1920.
I Cannot Put You Away
Herbert S. Gorman
I CANNOT put you away;
By night and day
You come in a dream and cry,
“It is I! It is I!”
I will rise and turn the lock        5
Nor heed your knock,
But rest for a night and day
With you away.
And then I will find release
And empty peace,        10
In silence that will not cry
“It is I! It is I!”
