Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Ploughing on Sunday
By Wallace Stevens
 
From “Pecksniffiana”

THE WHITE cock’s tail
Tosses in the wind.
The turkey-cock’s tail
Glitters in the sun.
 
Water in the fields.        5
The wind pours down.
The feathers flare
And bluster in the wind.
 
Remus, blow your horn!
I’m ploughing on Sunday,        10
Ploughing North America.
Blow your horn!
 
Tum-ti-tum,
Ti-tum-tum-tum!
The turkey-cock’s tail        15
Spreads to the sun.
 
The white cock’s tail
Streams to the moon.
Water in the fields.
The wind pours down.        20
