Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Mary Eastwood Knevels
THROUGH the pasture lie the rocks, gray as the sea in a fog,
As the sea in a mist.
(O breath of my yearning, O sea, breaking gray in a fog!)
The rocks rise tumultuous, the rocks are waves.
Flee from them, they are in pursuit;        5
Lichen-crusted their summits, rolling most mightily.
Flee from the rocks, the pale-crested waves of the meadows!
