Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Early Spring Night
By Viola I. Paradise
 
From “Weather Whims”

THE COOL spring night smells good,
Smells of the brown earth
And the strong little seeds
Pushing up through the brown earth.
 
My soul swells with thoughts        5
Impalpable,
Melancholy, exalted,
Blurring me.
 
The soft scarce-stirring wind moves through my hair.
Perhaps they are not thoughts,        10
Those impalpable things which stir my soul.
Perhaps they are my senses
Pushing up like the strong little seeds
Through the brown earth.
