Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Second Book of Modern Verse.  1922.
 
Overtones
 
William Alexander Percy
 
 
I HEARD a bird at break of day
  Sing from the autumn trees
A song so mystical and calm,
  So full of certainties,
No man, I think, could listen long        5
  Except upon his knees.
Yet this was but a simple bird,
  Alone, among dead trees.
