Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Richard Butler Glaenzer
Shoulders bare to the sun,
You carved cameos upon the sea—
Crisp white on milky blue,
Like Wedgwood.        5
You lie listless,
In a robe of green velvet
Gorgeously flowered—
Fee of the fickle winds.        10
In a monotony of loveliness,
You dream of the past—
An artist
Who conceived a masterpiece,        15
Repeated and repeated it;
And has nothing more to give.
