Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1418. Pax Paganica
 
By Louise Imogen Guiney
 
 
GOOD oars, for Arnold’s sake,
By Laleham lightly bound,
And near the bank, O soft,
Darling swan!
Let not the o’erweary wake        5
Anew from natal ground,
But where he slumbered oft,
Slumber on.
 
Be less than boat or bird,
The pensive stream along;        10
No murmur make, nor gleam,
At his side.
Where was it he had heard
Of warfare and of wrong?—
Not there, in any dream        15
Since he died.
