Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
263. The Poet
 
By Yone Noguchi
 
 
OUT of the deep and the dark,
A sparkling mystery, a shape,
Something perfect,
Comes like the stir of the day:
One whose breath is an odor,        5
Whose eyes show the road to stars,
The breeze in his face,
The glory of heaven on his back.
He steps like a vision hung in air,
Diffusing the passion of eternity;        10
His abode is the sunlight of morn,
The music of eve his speech:
In his sight,
One shall turn from the dust of the grave,
And move upward to the woodland.        15
