Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Burdens
By William H. Simpson
 
From “In Hopi-land and Other Lands”

BURDEN of water jars,
Borne up steep trails;
Burden of babies,
Asleep in thonged cradles.
 
And a heaped-up load of loving,        5
Carried lightly,
Over all the trails
To the end of them.
