Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Monotone
By Carl Sandburg
 
From “Days”

  THE MONOTONE of the rain is beautiful,
And the sudden rise and slow relapse
Of the long multitudinous rain.
 
  The sun on the hills is beautiful,
Or a captured sunset sea-flung,        5
Bannered with fire and gold.
 
  A face I know is beautiful—
With fire and gold of sky and sea,
And the peace of long warm rain.
