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

I CLIMB the sacred hillside
  Up through the evening blue:
The ancient steps are silvered
  By starlight and the dew.
 
And if the gray church vanish,        5
  My soul may worship still,
For God has hung the Southern Cross
  Above the kneeling hill.
