Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Snowtime
By Arthur Davison Ficke
 
  IS it summer that you crave—
Swallows dipping wing,
Evening light across the wave—
Or some farther thing?
 
  Some report of happier places—        5
Golden times and lands,
New and wonder-laden faces,
New and eager hands?
 
  Nay, you know not … But I know
Round you cold is furled,        10
Like this shroud of trampled snow
Smothering the world:
 
  Where no trust in any spring
Now can heal or save,
Nor the icy sunlight bring        15
Swallows o’er the wave.
