Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
309. The Harbor
 
By Carl Sandburg
 
 
PASSING through huddled and ugly walls,
By doorways where women haggard
Looked from their hunger-deep eyes,
Haunted with shadows of hunger-hands,
Out from the huddled and ugly walls,        5
I came sudden, at the city’s edge,
On a blue burst of lake,
Long lake waves breaking under the sun
On a spray-flung curve of shore;
And a fluttering storm of gulls,        10
Masses of great gray wings
And flying white bellies
Veering and wheeling free in the open.
