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

I SEE them in the storm-washed light,
  Like ebony against the sand;
The wrecks of ships lost long ago
  From many a mellow land.
Oh, may the sand soon cover them,        5
  And all their sorrow be unlearned!
They are too like those dreams of mine
  That nevermore returned.
