Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Sky-Humor
By Helen Hoyt
 
From “City Pastorals”

  HOW many and many
Since the world began
Have sung of your beauty,
Moon!—
Since the world began.        5
And now tonight
We call you ours,
Saying that your beauty belongs to us,
Dreaming that only ourselves
Have known your mystery.        10
 
  Sometimes,
Under the hiding of the clouds,
Do you smile,
And laugh to yourself
At these people of the earth        15
And their imaginings?
 
  Oh, but do not laugh at us unkindly,
Moon!
Remember how little time we live—
And you live so long!        20
