Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Max Michelson
From “Winds of March”

  MILES and miles you traveled.
  A wise brown bear
Rode you on his back;
Then a bird hopped along
Or flew in front and explained;        5
And a stone sent a bearded one
With a book.
  In your small warm nest you heard
Bells rung delicately; and strange calls.
  We built you a little house.        10
We hung up a sun and a moon,
And stars like apples.
The walls we painted red and blue.
We spread out carpets of Bagdad.
And three glasses with sweet wine        15
We stood in a corner.
