Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Boston Evening Transcript
By T. S. Eliot
 
THE READERS of the Boston Evening Transcript
Sway in the wind like a field of ripe corn.
 
When evening quickens faintly in the street,
Wakening the appetites of life in some
And to others bringing the Boston Evening Transcript,        5
I mount the steps and ring the bell, turning
Wearily, as one would turn to nod good-bye to Rochefoucauld,
If the street were Time and he at the end of the street,
And I say, “Cousin Harriet, here is the Boston Evening Transcript.”
