Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Embarcation
By Mary Aldis
 
SLOWLY the great wave of a nation’s sorrow
Rises and swells and surges.
From unseen depths it comes,
From very far away.
Silently, relentlessly, it moves        5
Forward, forward, forward—
Until at last, with a profound reverberation,
It breaks upon the grey, inevitable rock
And falls back, broken into fragments
That seethe in restless foam.        10
