Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Español
By Marsden Hartley
 
From “Sunlight Persuasions”

SEE him pass, Señoritas!
In his eyes are crisp shadows
Of doorways from the Alhambra—
Clipped with sunlight.
 
Habaneras come from Lillas Pastia’s        5
Tavern, as he saunters by—
From Pastia’s window in the moonlight.
 
I have seen the bull-ring in the pupils
Of his eyes:
Calm cool crowds—women arranging their mantillas,        10
Throwing kisses to their beloved matador,
Over the ring-side.
 
I have seen thunder-storms on the hills of Toledo—
Lightning striking the Escorial.
I have seen the fandango, when he smiled.        15
 
These are all for you—
                    Señoritas!
