Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Maurice Lesemann
From “Brushwood”

I COME from many hours of lonely
Laughter with my friend, and from many
Hours of whispering at the knees
Of a dark scornful girl I know.
I come from a swamp where gray rain glistens,        5
From headlands bleak under the blow;
And to any lonely man who listens
I will speak quietly of these
Before I light my pipe and go.
