Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Mercedes de Acosta
From “Through Windows”

I WATCH the lumbermen
Winding up the mountain
Between the autumn branches.
I see
Leaves gold, red, flame and green,        5
With flashes of faded blue between
Of their overalls.
Straining and pulling,
Horses brown and soiled white
Stagger up the mountain-side        10
Before them,
Dragging huge and heavy timber.
Down in the valley
I can hear the echo
Of the men’s muffled curses,        15
And the quick snap
Of long thin whips.
