Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Harriet Monroe
From “Carolina Wood-cuts”

SPREAD them wide,
Lovely ladies,
Spread your skirts wide.
Pink and white—
Oh, fair and chaste!—        5
Flutter down the mountain,
Rest in the wood.
Gold and red fire—
Oh, eager and warm!—
Gather in the hollows,        10
Shine in the shade.
Come in rings,
Come in crowds!
Storm the shy coverts
And the gloomy glades!        15
The sun will fish for you
Through the pine-tops;
The rain will jewel you
As you dance in the wind.
