Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Immobile Wind
By Yvor Winters
 
BLUE waves within the stone
Turn like deft wrists interweaving.
 
Emotion, undulant, alone.
Curled wings flow beyond perceiving.
 
Swift points of sight,        5
    mystic and amorous little hands,
The wind has drunk
    as water swallows sifting sands.
 
The wings of a butterfly
Feel of the wind        10
Tentatively; as men die
In thought, that have not sinned.
