Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Contrast
By Harrison S. Morris
 
Vesuvius
A CROWN of smoke, a crumbling cone of dust,
And at her feet a curve of azure sea:
So stands Vesuvius angry and august,
Last of her fiery race in Italy.
 
Pontifex Maximus
A palace, and a garden, and a dome,
        5
All that remain of Empire far and free;
An old man exiled in an alien Rome
Wearing a crown of smoke in Italy.
