William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. (1878–1962).  Anthology of Massachusetts Poets.  1922.
 
The Storm
 
G. O. Warren
 
 
SHE reached for sunset fires,
And lived with stars and the sea,
The mountains for her temple,
The storm for priest had she.
 
Together a libation        5
They poured to the God she knew,
Such wine as ageless heavens
And lonely wisdom brew.
 
Now she has done with worship,
For her all rites are the same;        10
Yet the storm keeps green forever
The moss upon her name.
