Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
400. Song
 
By John Hall Wheelock
 
 
ALL my love for my sweet
  I bared one day to her.
Carelessly she took it,
  And like a conqueror
She bowed the neck of my soul        5
  To fit it to her yoke,
And bridled the lips of Song—
  Fear within me awoke!
But Love cried: “Swiftly, swiftly
  Bear her along the road;        10
Beautiful is the goal
  And Beauty is the goad.”
