Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Twenty-four Hours
By Evelyn Scott
 
From “Tropical Life”

        White flower,
Your petals float away;
But I hardly hear them.

THE DAY is so long and white,
A road all dust,
Smooth monotony;
And the night at the end,
A hill to be climbed,        5
Slowly, laboriously,
While the stars prick our hands
Like thistles.
