Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Sown
By Charles R. Murphy
 
From “Growth”

RAIN and the patience of the planted field,
Grey skies that hasten to the need
Of brown moistening earth, and to the sealed
Faint harvest in the unbroken seed—
Patience for waiting give us! O planted men,        5
Who waits your budding and your heaped
Flowers of death? Again, again
Perhaps ye shall return—the reapers, not the reaped—
And, braver than corn-seed hid away together,
Of our meagre or our mighty yield        10
Shall wake for the gathering in harvest weather.
