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

OH, cut me reeds to blow upon,
  Or gather me a star,
But leave the sultry passion-flowers
  Growing where they are.
 
I fear their sombre yellow deeps,        5
  Their whirling fringe of black,
And he who gives a passion-flower
  Always asks it back.
