Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
A Message to P’ai Ti
By Witter Bynner and Kiang Kung-hu, trans.
From “Poems by Wang Wei”
From the Chinese

COLD and blue now are the mountains
From autumn-rain that beat all day.
By my thatch-door, leaning on my staff,
I listen to cicadas in the evening wind.
Sunset lingers at the ferry,        5
Cooking-smoke floats up from the houses….
Oh, when shall I pledge Chieh-yu again,
And sing a wild poem at Five Willows!
