Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By John Drinkwater
AS pools beneath stone arches take
  Darkly within their deeps again
Shapes of the flowing stone, and make
  Stories anew of passing men,
So let the living thoughts that keep,        5
  Morning and evening, in their kind,
Eternal change in height and deep,
  Be mirrored in my happy mind.
Beat, world, upon this heart, be loud
  Your marvel chanted in my blood.        10
Come forth, O sun, through cloud on cloud
  To shine upon my stubborn mood.
Great hills that fold above the sea,
  Ecstatic airs and sparkling skies,
Sing out your words to master me—        15
  Make me immoderately wise.
