Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Second Book of Modern Verse.  1922.
 
The Wanderer
 
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.
