Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
April Weather
By Edith Wyatt
 
IF you could have a perfect day
    To dream of when your life were done,
Would you choose one all clear, all gay—
    If you could have a perfect day—
The airs above the wide green way        5
    Sheer virgin blue with crystal sun?—
If you could have a perfect day
    To dream of when your life were done.
 
Or would you have it April’s way,
    Haphazard rain, haphazard sun,        10
Divine and sordid, clear and gray,
    Dyed like these hours’ own work and play;
All shot with stains of tears and clay,
    Haphazard pain, haphazard fun—
If you could have a perfect day        15
    To dream of when your life were done?
