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

THE GREAT ONE’S height near the City of Heaven
Joins a thousand mountains to the corner of the sea.
Clouds, when I look back, close behind me;
Mists, when I enter them, are gone.
A central peak divides the wilds        5
And weather into many valleys….
Needing a place to spend the night,
I call to a wood-cutter over the river.
