Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Haniel Long
From “On the Road”

THE NIGHT came softly to the sea;
And they, the seven stars, to me.
The sea, the seven stars, and I
Gave an involuntary cry.
It echoed in the hills, and went        5
The ways of old bewilderment.
And I alone the reason knew,
And I had told it then to you,
But stars are strange, the sea is deep,
And you were lovely in your sleep.        10
