Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
166. After the Martyrdom
 
By Scharmel Iris
 
 
THEY threw a stone, you threw a stone,
  I threw a stone that day.
Although their sharpness bruised his flesh
  He had no word to say.
 
But for the moan he did not make        5
  To-day I make my moan;
And for the stone I threw at him
  My heart must bear a stone.
