Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
402. Nirvana
 
By John Hall Wheelock
 
 
SLEEP on—I lie at heaven’s high oriels,
  Over the stars that murmur as they go
  Lighting your lattice-window far below.
And every star some of the glory spells
  Whereof I know.        5
 
I have forgotten you, long long ago;
  Like the sweet, silver singing of thin bells
Vanished, or music fading faint and low.
  Sleep on—I lie at heaven’s high oriels,
Who loved you so.        10
