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

I LIE on mine back
Un look at stars—
So bright, so thick,
Sailing like Portugee men-o’-wars;
Un I ask myself how many stars can be        5
Un how far.
But I am only one little man
On one little ship
Sailing ninety days to one port,
Un I think I am mighty big business.        10
Stars ain’t Portugee men-o’-wars.
