Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Hokku
By Yone Noguchi
 
I
BITS of song—what else?
I, a rider of the stream,
Lone between the clouds.
 
II
Full of faults, you say.
What beauty in repentance!        5
Tears, songs—thus life flows.
 
III
But the march to life—
Break song to sing the new song!
Clouds leap, flowers bloom.
 
IV
Song of sea in rain,
        10
Voice of the sky, earth and men!
List, song of my heart.
