Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Tramps
By Maurice Lesemann
 
From “Brushwood”

MUFFLED in his shabby black clothes
With crab-apple cheeks the wind made ripe—
I wonder where each vagabond goes,
Smoking wise thoughts out of his pipe.
 
Like a wet blackbird in the rain or        5
Flapping across the prairie in wind,
I wonder if it’s the devil’s gain or
His, since first he sang and sinned.
