Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
The Sudden Coming of Spring
By Louise S. Hammond, trans.
From “Poems from the Chinese”
In the original syllabic and rhyme scheme, to accompany the Chinese chanting tunes.
By Cheng Hao (Sung Dynasty)

SCANT clouds just flake the noon sky;
By willowed streamlets stroll I.
  But men know not my heart’s joy,
And say, “Old fool, the hours fly.”
