Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
A Lady of the Snows
By Harriet Monroe
 
From “Mountain Poems”

THE MOUNTAIN hemlock droops her lacy branches
  Oh, so tenderly
    In the summer sun!
Yet she has power to baffle avalanches—
  She, rising slenderly        5
    Where the rivers run.
 
So pliant yet so powerful! Oh, see her
  Spread alluringly
    Her thin sea-green dress!
Now from white winter’s thrall the sun would free her        10
  To bloom unenduringly
    In his glad caress.
