Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Old Weep Gently
By A. Y. Winters
 
From “Monodies”

THESE old trees
Sigh in every leaf,
Look down their trunks
As if back down the years.
Old knots stay        5
Where limbs were torn away—
Little fist-rubbed faces
Of gargoyle grief;
While shadows
Slip down the trunks        10
Like tears.
