Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Huasteca
By Grace Hazard Conkling
 
From “Songs for Places”
Old Mexico

ORCHID, elfin orchid,
  Made of purple air,
Yours is wistful silence,
  Hard to bear.
 
Were he here, my lover,        5
  Wiser far than I,
We should hear your beauty
  Sing and sigh.
