Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Gum-trees
By H. W. Stewart
 
From “Tasmanian Sketches”

THE GUM-TREES during the spring rains grew so fast
That their boughs are weak
And cannot bear up the weight of russet leaves,
But droop towards the ground like willows.
 
With the sun behind, and a light wind stirring,        5
They are living fountains of flame.
