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

NOW are ye lean, O trees, and shaped for soaring
  Over the sacred snow that hides the land;
Now after stress of bitter storms endured
  On the spent earth unmutinous ye stand.
Only your faces now are turned not earthward,        5
  However deep your roots are clasped there.
With the gaunt gesture of a saint’s uprising,
  Ye are the resurrection that is prayer.
