Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
917. Noël
 
By Richard Watson Gilder
 
 
STAR-DUST and vaporous light,—
  The mist of worlds unborn,—
A shuddering in the awful night
  Of winds that bring the morn.
 
Now comes the dawn: the circling earth;        5
  Creatures that fly and crawl;
And Man, that last, imperial birth;
  And Christ, the flower of all.
