Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Of the Surface of Things
By Wallace Stevens
 
From “Pecksniffiana”

I
IN my room, the world is beyond my understanding;
But when I walk I see that it consists of three or four hills and a cloud.
 
III
From my balcony, I survey the yellow air,
Reading where I have written,
“The spring is like a belle undressing.”        5
 
III
The gold tree is blue.
The singer has pulled his cloak over his head.
The moon is in the folds of the cloak.
