Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Mark Turbyfill
From “Journeys and Discoveries”

LIFE is more sweet than I
Knew: the shifted scene
Less wavered, more trimmed with light,
Than the years before.
Look down. People pass over the ice        5
As a file of thin ghosts creep,
And fade beyond a hill.
You, and you, and you—
Small souls, shrinking away.
And you, and you, and you,        10
Bearing lights in your hands,
Approaching eternally….. Life is
More sweet than I knew.
