Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1383. The Satirist
 
By Harry Lyman Koopman
 
 
NOT mine to draw the cloth-yard shaft
    From straining palm to thrilling ear;
Then launch it through the monster’s hulk,
    One thrust, from front to rear.
 
Mine is the Bushman’s tiny bow,        5
    Whose wounds the foeman hardly feels;
He laughs, and lifts his hand to smite,
    Then suddenly he reels.
