Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Blue Ridge
By Harriet Monroe
 
From “Carolina Wood-cuts”

STILL and calm,
In purple robes of kings,
The low-lying mountains sleep at the edge of the world.
The forests cover them like mantles;
Day and night        5
Rise and fall over them like the wash of waves.
 
Asleep they reign.
Silent they say all.
Hush me, O slumbering mountains—
Send me dreams.        10
