Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
416. Metric Figure
 
By William Carlos Williams
 
 
THERE is a bird in the poplars—
It is the sun!
The leaves are little yellow fish
Swimming in the river;
The bird skims above them—        5
Day is on his wings.
Phoenix!
It is he that is making
The great gleam among the poplars.
It is his singing        10
Outshines the noise
Of leaves clashing in the wind.
