Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern British Poetry.  1920.
 
"A. E." (George William Russell). 1867–
 
59. The Unknown God
 
FAR up the dim twilight fluttered 
  Moth-wings of vapour and flame: 
The lights danced over the mountains, 
  Star after star they came. 
  
The lights grew thicker unheeded,         5
  For silent and still were we; 
Our hearts were drunk with a beauty 
  Our eyes could never see.
