Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Under the Saman
By Richard Butler Glaenzer
 
From “Crayons of Dominica”

UNDER the circular shadow of the jetty’s saman
Creamy high-humped cattle munch the sweet pods:
The zebus browse placidly against the blue and black
Of the sea and a distant promontory.
On this promontory de Bouillé defeated Stuart;        5
On this sea Rodney defeated de Grasse.
