Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By William H. Simpson
From “In Hopi-land and Other Lands”

O PEOPLE of the peaceful places,
I have known you of old!
Yet your wise men say nothing,
Nor the tinted sands—
The shifting, singing sands.        5
These alone are the Knowing Ones:
The shadows of yonder clouds,
And the far-journeying winds—
Winds that cover yesterday’s pathway.
They are the gray wings of your rains,        10
They are the messengers of your praying.
