Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Los Llanos
By William H. Simpson
 
From “Along Old Trails”

AGAIN, O plains,
I go your windswept ways,
With Indian, trapper, trader, pioneer—
Gray shadows all
On gray grass.        5
 
I am companioned—
Miracle most strange—
By youth
And its high dreams.
 
West, with the sun,        10
From rim to rim;
And then,
Beyond ken,
Tired miles of trails
On sod fresh trod.        15
 
So new
The billows of your grass—
So new
Your breezes, born each morn.
 
But old—so old—        20
The ghosts that pass.
