Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Metric Figure
By William Carlos Williams
 
From “Root Buds”

  THERE is a bird in the poplars—
It is the sun!
The leaves are little yellow fish
Swimming in the river;
The bird skims above them—        5
Day is on his wings.
Phoenix!
It is he that is making
The great gleam among the poplars.
It is his singing        10
Outshines the noise
Of leaves clashing in the wind.
