Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Chicago Spring
By Yvor Winters
 
Before returning to Santa Fe

I WALK on the streets
Before nightfall—
The lake clear and still
Between young leaves.
 
My body is gentle        5
As the light on the pavement.
My fingers play on the air
Like evening wind running in leaves.
 
But there is no one—
Only return,        10
Only old roads of last summer,
An old fence like dead leaves.
 
The hand of God
Is heavier than mountains.
It stands on the air        15
Like an odor.
