Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
Our Time
By David Osborne Hamilton
From “Hoofs and Haloes”

ONCE more earth bellows with the lust
  Of rolling drums. Once more we win with fire
The passing wind, and perish for the dust
  Of man’s desire.
Fierce as the tiger in the night,        5
  And greedy as the swine that roots the clod
Is man, whose spirit of eternal light
  Moves into God.
