Upton Sinclair, ed. (1878–1968).
The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
 
Tonight

By Carlos Wupperman

(Contemporary American poet)
 
TONIGHT the beautiful, chaste moon
  From heaven’s height
Scatters over the bridal earth
  Blossoms of white;
And spring’s renewed glad charms unfold        5
  Endless delight.
 
Such mystic wonder the hushed world wears,
  Evil has fled
Far, far away; in every heart
  God reigns instead.…        10
Tonight a starving virgin sells
  Her soul for bread.
