Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Supplicants
By H. W. Stewart
 
From “Tasmanian Sketches”

IN the shimmering heat
Of the noon-day sun
The parched purple hills
Kneel to snow-crowned Ben Lomond,
Holding out supplicant hands,        5
Craving a morsel of healing snow.
 
God-like, austere, unbending
Ben Lomond stands,
Deaf to their prayers.
