Louis Untermeyer, ed. (1885–1977). Modern American Poetry.  1919.
 
Ezra Pound. 1884–
 
105. [Greek]
 
BE in me as the eternal moods 
        of the bleak wind, and not 
As transient things are— 
        gaiety of flowers. 
Have me in the strong loneliness         5
        of sunless cliffs 
And of gray waters. 
        Let the gods speak softly of us 
In days hereafter, 
        the shadowy flowers of Orcus  10
Remember thee.
