Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Cecily Fryer
  UNDERNEATH the night sky, and out upon the heath,
  It makes a man feel lonesome, and scared at a breath.
  Maybe, in the open you’re nearer up to God,
But set my feet in well worn paths that other feet have trod!
  Underneath the night sky the ghosts begin to creep—        5
  Ghosts that cry of evil things long laid to sleep,
  Little ghosts that whisper of a cold eternity.
Oh, give me friends and fireside to warm my soul and me!
