Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
64. Apparitions
 
By Alice Corbin
 
 
I
A THIN gray shadow on the edge of thought
Hiding its wounds:
These are the wounds of sorrow—
It was my hand that made them;
And this gray shadow that resembles you        5
Is my own heart, weeping …
You sleep quietly beneath the shade
Of willows in the south.
 
II
When the cold dawn stood above the house-tops,
Too late I remembered the cry        10
In the night of a wild bird flying
Through the rain-filled sky.
