Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1582. A Crowned Poet
 
By Anne Reeve Aldrich
 
 
IN thy coach of state
  Pass, O King, along:
He no envy feels
  To whom God giveth song.
 
Starving, still I smile,        5
  Laugh at want and wrong:
He is fed and crowned
  To whom God giveth song.
 
Better than all pomps
  That to rank belong,—        10
One such dream as his
  To whom God giveth song.
 
Let us greet, O King,
  As we pass along:
He, too, is a king        15
  To whom God giveth song.
