Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Grace Hazard Conkling
From “Songs for Places”
Old Mexico

NO matter how you love me
  You cannot keep me home.
Along the airy lane of bells
  Beyond the peacock dome,
I know the way to travel,        5
  And I shall go at will—
Where the stone sails await the wind
  Upon the holy hill.
The mariners who made them,
  They have been long away:        10
But when a wind from Heaven blows,
  They will come back some day;
And I shall hear them singing
  And watch the stone sails fill,
Till the white city like a ship        15
  Moves out across the hill.
