Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Year
By Evelyn Scott
 
From “Tropical Life”

DAYS and days float by.
On the sides of the mountains
Blue shadows shift
And sift into silence.
Morning….        5
The cock crows.
There is that rosy glow on the mountains’ edge.
José in the door of his hut,
Maria’s lace bobbins
Tapping, tapping.        10
Evening….
The parrot’s shrill cry,
Pale silver green stars.
Night….
And ghosts of dead Josés        15
And dead Marias
Sitting in the moonlight.
Peace—
Depressing,
Interminable        20
Peace.
