Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Flood
By James Joyce
 
GOLD-BROWN upon the sated flood
The rock-vine clusters lift and sway:
Vast wings above the lambent waters brood
Of sullen day.
 
A waste of waters ruthlessly        5
Sways and uplifts its weedy mane,
Where brooding day stares down upon the sea
In dull disdain.
 
Uplift and sway, O golden vine,
Thy clustered fruits to love’s full flood,        10
Lambent and vast and ruthless as is thine
Incertitude.
