Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Lyon Sharman
From “Designs in Chinese Color”

  FAR up the side of White-cloud Mountain
    A deep pool lies,
  Content in every change of weather
    To reflect the skies;
Fed by the grace of heaven from seeping little springs;        5
Mirror of pointed firs, solace of eagles’ wings.
  And yet the water of the cloud-loved pool
    Breaks foaming from the quiet hills away,
  To add its trickle to an oceanful,
    Flooding, storming, mocking every day.        10
