Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Grass-tops
By Witter Bynner
 
From “Sea-edge Songs”

WHAT bird are you in the grass-tops?
  Your poise is enough of an answer,
With your wing-tips like up-curving fingers
  Of the slow-moving hands of a dancer.
 
And what is so nameless as beauty?—        5
  Which poets, who give it a name,
Are only unnaming forever,
  Content, though it go, that it came.
