Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Oscar Williams
From “Under the Sun”

A SKY filling with shadow as a flower with rain …
  A wind gray with the secret moods of the sea …
And the old singing comes back again,
  The old aching perplexity.
The old questioning comes back once more        5
  Asking the little shadows hiding in tears,
Why love cries in the rain outside the door,
  And beauty blunders forever down the years.
