Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Mid-May
By Charles R. Murphy
 
From “Growth”

PUT aside your words, and there are left
Stones of the grey walls and apple-trees;
And in the flesh and mind, and in what seems
Birthing almost of an immortal soul,
Virginity and fortitude and hope—        5
Delicate as blossoms on the gnarled limbs
White, grey and green above the risen grass.
