Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Invocation
By Margaret DeLaughter
 
From “In the Night Watches”

KWAN-YIN, mother of mercies,
  Kwan-yin, goddess of prayer,
Hear my voice at thine altar,
  Heed my foot on the stair!
 
Lo, the rice-bowl is empty;        5
  Toa-tai smiles no more.
Sorrow lurks at our roof-tree,
  Ruin waits at the door.
 
Kwan-yin, mother of mercies,
  Kwan-yin, goddess of prayer,        10
Hear my voice at thine altar,
  Heed my foot on the stair!
