Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Louise Townsend Nicholl
ONE by one upon my shore
  The little waves are laid,
Each one a new and perfect thing
  Which the sea has made.
From that which is forever old        5
  They come, forever young,
The latest, faintest echoes
  Of the song the sea has sung.
They echo it in whispers.
  I listen ceaselessly,        10
For fear the echoes die away
  And I should hear the sea.
