Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern American Poetry.  1919.
 
Carl Sandburg. 1878–
 
77. Nocturne in a Deserted Brickyard
 
STUFF of the moon 
Runs on the lapping sand 
Out to the longest shadows. 
Under the curving willows, 
And round the creep of the wave line,         5
Fluxions of yellow and dusk on the waters 
Make a wide dreaming pansy of an old pond in the night.
