Earth Song

By George Sterling

Passion in market and haven,
  Anger in oil and stone;
All envious line work, graven
  On tendon and bone—

These are the first to leave,
The last to believe...

Shade and the sun and the earth
  In her rich green fur—
This answers to all of worth
  And is the answer!

Here the editors have signed Sterling's name at the end of the poem as his character, "Tancred"
