Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Encounter
By Helen Hoyt
 
From “In a Certain City”

I HELD a violet in my hand
  In the midst of the city,
And could not understand
  My own pity.
Now was face to face        5
  Littleness with the immensity of towers:
Strength was looking at grace;
  The city sighing for lost woodland hours.
