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

I
A STORM of white petals,
Buds throwing open baby fists
Into hands of broad flowers.
 
II
Red roses running upward,
Clambering to the clutches of life        5
Soaked in crimson.
 
III
Rabbles of tattered leaves
Holding golden flimsy hopes
Against the tramplings
Into the pits and gullies.        10
 
IV
Hoarfrost and silence:
Only the muffling
Of winds dark and lonesome—
Great lullabies to the long sleepers.
