Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Strength
By Eda Lou Walton
 
From “Hill Songs”

GOD says to the sea
Again and again,
“Come back to the shore;”
And again and again to the moon,
“Once more        5
Slip over the dune;”
And with each night done,
“Rise again,”
To the sun.
He makes every daisy        10
Separately.
For each bird’s song more
Claps an encore
From his balcony floor.
Can it be        15
God alone has strength to exult
In monotony?
