Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Louise Ayres Garnett
From “Flowers of War”

LAST night I dreamed the Cross of God
Stood rooted deep in Flanders sod,
And wide its open arms were spread
Over the fields of living dead.
Mile upon mile the crosses rose        5
Shepherding sleep’s supreme repose,
And as I looked they seemed to be
Merged into conquering Calvary.
O Jesus—more than Savior now:
Brother, soldier, captain, Thou!—        10
Each of Thy comrades of the cross
Treasures the gift that man calls loss.
Oh, what an Easter lies concealed
Beneath the flowers on Flanders Field!
