Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Odd Ones
By Ruth Suckow
 
From “By Hill and Dale”

I LIKE best those crotchety ones
  That follow their own way
In whimsical oblivion
  Of what the neighbors say.
 
They grow more rare as they grow old,        5
  Their lives show in their faces—
In little slants and twisted lines;
  Like trees in lonely places.
