Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Kemper Hammond Broadus
From “Rough Ways”

ALL day the wind has sent along the trail
  A cry of battle. Now night falls again.
Swept through the dusk like horsemen spectral-pale,
  The charging snow-gusts spur across the plain.
Beneath their onslaught fades each wagon-mark.        5
  The winding road is captured. Mad to slay,
They thunder down upon me in the dark;
  They strike me, blind me—I have lost the way!
