    • "Ellis Park," in Harriet Monroe and Alice Corbin Henderson, eds., The New Poetry ()
  • Since I have felt the sense of death, / Since I have borne its dread, its fear — Oh, how my life has grown more dear / Since I have felt the sense of death! / Sorrows are good, and cares are small, / Since I have known the loss of all.

  • Since I have felt the sense of death, / And death forever at my side — / Oh, how the world has opened wide / Since I have felt the sense of death! / My hours are jewels that I spend / For I have seen the hours end.
