Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Maxwell Bodenheim
From “Sketches in Color”

  THE MORNING lowers its fire-veined back
And quivers beneath the edged feet of winds:
So do you stoop to your agony.
  The air brushes up the fibrous souls
Of flowers, and sprinkles them between        5
The flickering-sleeved arms of lime trees:
So does your sorrow whirl you apart.
  The brocade-robed night staggers against the wall of the sky,
And fiercely sinks its woe-turbaned head:
So does your grief lean upon me.        10
