Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Wonder of It
By Harriet Monroe
 
From “Poems of Travel”

HOW wild, how witch-like weird that life should be!
That the insensate rock dared dream of me,
And take to bursting out and burgeoning—
    Oh long ago—yo ho!—
And wearing green! How stark and strange a thing        5
That life should be!
 
Oh mystic mad, a rigadoon of glee,
That dust should rise, and leap alive, and flee
A-foot, a-wing, and shake the deeps with cries—
    Oh far away—yo-hay!        10
What moony masque, what arrogant disguise
That life should be!
