Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
778. Before Sunrise in Winter
 
By Edward Rowland Sill
 
 
A PURPLE cloud hangs half-way down;
  Sky, yellow gold below;
The naked trees, beyond the town,
  Like masts against it show,—
 
Bare masts and spars of our earth-ship,        5
  With shining snow-sails furled;
And through the sea of space we slip,
  That flows all round the world.
