Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
7. The Wanderer
 
By Zoë Akins
 
 
THE SHIPS are lying in the bay,
  The gulls are swinging round their spars;
My soul as eagerly as they
  Desires the margin of the stars.
 
So much do I love wandering,        5
  So much I love the sea and sky,
That it will be a piteous thing
  In one small grave to lie.
