Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Spring Morning
By Marion Strobel
 
From “Song Sketches”

O DAY—if I could cup my hands and drink of you,
And make this shining wonder be
A part of me!
O day! O day!
You lift and sway your colors on the sky        5
Till I am crushed with beauty. Why is there
More of reeling sunlit air
Than I can breathe? Why is there sound
In silence? Why is a singing wound
About each hour?        10
And perfume when there is no flower?
O day! O day! How may I press
Nearer to loveliness?
