Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Mellow
By Mark Turbyfill
 
THESE soft hours,
The color of blurred pebbles
And wan sand,
Are an old worn fringe
About the breasts        5
Of the mellow afternoon.
 
The lilac lake
Is a saucer—thin—
Burdened with faint blue rings.
 
The brown velvet dog        10
Is a curved attitude
Upon the lawn.
 
Jagged in the black tree-lines
The frayed sun languishes—
A pale pink poppy        15
Grown too large.
