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

AN OLD monk is my night….
 
Long ago he was young …
Song shone between his lips,
And a necklace of round white arms
Fulfilled his throat….        5
 
Dried fruit of trees
That blossom in bitterness
Rustle on his bent shoulders …
Wry grey flesh festoons his yellow teeth….
 
My night is old….        10
