Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Continuance
By Helen Hoyt
 
From “City Pastorals”

WHAT will you find
In the depths of the wind—
What does it hold?
Fold on fold on flowing fold
Clasp it, and your fingers press        5
Only a soft emptiness;
Only air is in your hand.
Yet this nothing may command
The purposes of men and seas,
Ordering them with a mighty ease;        10
With that same, that ancient power
That was born in time’s first hour,
In the beginning of change and days.
But never its strength delays
Or grows old, or will weary or rest;        15
Nor the years diminish its wild invisible zest.
