Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Noontime
By Frederick R. McCreary
 
From “Hillside Poems”

NOONTIME and locusts,
Locusts goading the heat
Quivering over the hay-fields;
Yet the men arise from half-eaten dinners
And hood canvas over the stacks—        5
The full tawny breasts of the hayfields—
For the first dark finger of lust
Is pointing over a steeple
Far in the distance.
