Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Olive Runner
GIVE me the long, straight road before me,
  A clear, cold day with a nipping air,
Tall, bare trees to run on beside me,
  A heart that is light and free from care.
Then let me go!—I care not whither        5
  My feet may lead, for my spirit shall be
Free as the brook that flows to the river,
  Free as the river that flows to the sea.
