Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Deity
By Louis Gilmore
 
From “Inventions”

IN incense before gods He rises,
In the blue smoke of cigarettes He curls.
He dwells in the eyelids of the Buddha;
He is in the lotus.
 
The delicate tree-tops He sways.        5
Over the roofs of houses He stalks.
He is in the moon mirrored in a pool;
He is in the sky.
 
In the tails of peacocks He is a jewel;
In the garden of sun-flowers He is a rose.        10
He hangs above an adoration of candles.
He is on a cross.
