Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Doris Campbell
NOTHING can chain the days—
  I have no time for dreams.
Stop these days, someone,
  So I may stretch my white body.
Why do you chain them by sevens?        5
  Why not by many hundreds?
I am irked at seeing them
  Laid forever, neatly, in rows.
Be the day gray or blue,
  You have named it.        10
Who calls that ball of fire the sun?
