Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
33. Night and Morning Songs
 
Dawn
 
By Gordon Bottomley
 
 
A THRUSH is tapping a stone
With a snail-shell in its beak;
A small bird hangs from a cherry
Until the stern shall break.
No waking song has begun,        5
And yet birds chatter and hurry
And throng in the elm’s gloom
Because an owl goes home.
