Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Nadir
By John Crawford
 
From “Night”

I AM part of lonely things
Of this lonely city …
.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .
A gold fish in a bowl,
Lowered into a lake,
Would feel the sleeping presence of fish        5
Even as I
Feel life withdrawn, suspended….
 
An immanence of life,
Like a remembered song of violins
And oboes        10
After a dance.
.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .
Even the sound of my footsteps
Dies in the snow.
