Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern British Poetry.  1920.
 
Anna Wickham. 
 
141. Song
 
I WAS so chill, and overworn, and sad, 
To be a lady was the only joy I had. 
I walked the street as silent as a mouse, 
Buying fine clothes, and fittings for the house. 
  
But since I saw my love         5
I wear a simple dress, 
And happily I move 
Forgetting weariness.
