Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Device
By Clara Shanafelt
 
From “In Summer”

I
  FOR a proud poet
The bitter chrysanthemum
Untamed by frost,
Spending gold in bleak weather.
 
II
  Mine shall be
        5
A lean geranium in a pot
Climbing the cottage pane.
Old leaves yellow and drop off,
New green puts out.
I like it for the pungent scent it gives        10
When you bruise it.
Though lacking sun it may never afford
A scarlet flower.
