Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern American Poetry.  1919.
 
"H. D." 1886–
 
112. Pear Tree
 
SILVER dust 
lifted from the earth, 
higher than my arms reach, 
you have mounted. 
O silver,         5
higher than my arms reach 
you front us with great mass; 
  
no flower ever opened 
so staunch a white leaf, 
no flower ever parted silver  10
from such rare silver; 
  
O white pear, 
your flower-tufts, 
thick on the branch, 
bring summer and ripe fruits  15
in their purple hearts.
