Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1445. To O. S. C.
 
By Annie Eliot Trumbull
 
 
SPIRIT of “fire and dew,”
  Whither hast fled?
Thy soul they never knew
  Who call thee dead.
 
Deep thoughts of why and how        5
  Shadowed thine eyes:
Thou hast the answers now
  Straight from the skies.
 
Thrilled with a double power,
  Nature and Art,—        10
Dowered with a double dower,
  Reason and heart,—
 
Not souls like thine, in vain
  God fashioneth;
Leadeth them forth again,        15
  Gently, by death.
