Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Mountains Are a Lonely Folk
By Hamlin Garland
 
THE MOUNTAINS they are silent folk
    They stand afar—alone,
And the clouds that kiss their brows at night
Hear neither sigh nor groan.
    Each bears him in his ordered place        5
  As soldiers do, and bold and high
They fold their forests round their feet
  And bolster up the sky.
