Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Song
By Nelson Antrim Crawford
 
From “Fragilities”

THESE are the words of the wind:
    Over your white body shall pass
    Whorls of water, whorls of light,
    Of the lustre of blown glass.
These are the words of the wind.        5
 
You are beloved of the silence
    And the grey still rain.
Once the sun loved you utterly,
    And shall love you again.
 
These are the words of the wind:        10
    Over your white body shall pass
    Whorls of water, whorls of light,
    Of the lustre of blown glass.
These are the words of the wind.
