Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Poor
By William Carlos Williams
 
From “Broken Windows”

BY constantly tormenting them
With reminders of the lice in
Their children’s hair, the
School physician first
Brought their hatred down on him.        5
But by this familiarity
They grew used to him, and so,
At last,
Took him for their friend and adviser.
