Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Gubbinal
By Wallace Stevens
 
From “Sur Ma Guzzla Gracile”

THAT strange flower, the sun,
Is just what you say.
Have it your way.
 
The world is ugly,
And the people are sad.        5
 
That tuft of jungle feathers,
That animal eye,
Is just what you say.
 
That savage of fire,
That seed—        10
Have it your way.
 
The world is ugly,
And the people are sad.
