Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern American Poetry.  1919.
 
Christopher Morley. 1890–
 
129. To a Post-Office Inkwell
 
HOW many humble hearts have dipped 
In you, and scrawled their manuscript! 
Have shared their secrets, told their cares, 
Their curious and quaint affairs! 
  
Your pool of ink, your scratchy pen,         5
Have moved the lives of unborn men, 
And watched young people, breathing hard, 
Put Heaven on a postal card.
