Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Chicago
By Helen Hoyt
 
From “In a Certain City”

SMOKE and tawny air;
Bricks blurred with black,
Softened with dusk,
Edges clouded with smoke—
Great human thing, beautiful with ugliness,        5
Gripping our hearts because you are big and clumsy and kind,
Going with dream-misted eyes:
Tenderly you take our love, with welcome,
Coarse and strong and friendly.
