Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Robert J. Roe
From “A Sailor's Note-book”

THEY ask me why I get drunk,
Un I tell them:
Whatfor when I come im port
I carry all the sea across mine shoulders
Un wouldn’t nobody help me;        5
Only Jock, the bar-man,
Smiles un takes load
Un puts im corner.
When mine money is all gone
Jock gives me back the sea.        10
