Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Grace Hazard Conkling
From “Songs for Places”
Old Mexico

IS it long to Orizaba?
  Have I far to go?
When I ask the carrier-pigeons,
  They don’t know.
There’s a mountain I am seeking,        5
  Feathered all with snow.
When I ask the valley orchids,
  They don’t know.
Like an orchid pale and folded,
  Like a snowy bird,        10
That’s the mountain I am seeking:
  Have you heard?
You can see it on the sunrise
  When the clear winds blow.
Is it far to Orizaba,        15
  Do you know?
