Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Gulf View
By Grace Hazard Conkling
 
From “Out of Mexico”

  BETWEEN the striped walls of the canyon
Burns a crescent of blue water, arresting, poignant:
Jewel-blue,
        soul of opals and sapphires;
Feather-blue,        5
      stain of indigo on the peacock’s breast;
Flame-blue,
      color that hovers above the copper-saturated driftwood in the beach-fire.
  And the tall white poppy down the canyon
Sways against the blaze        10
Like a ship.
