Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
Night-time in Spring
By Louise S. Hammond, trans.
From “Poems from the Chinese”
In the original syllabic and rhyme scheme, to accompany the Chinese chanting tunes.
By Wang An-Shih (Sung Dynasty)

SILENCE reigns where sound has been;
Chill the breeze, half soft, half keen;
  While the moon through sleepless hours
Shifts dark blossoms up the screen.
