Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By H. Thompson Rich
To M. E. S.

I FANCY that perhaps you think of me—
At times, when the curtain of dusk has fallen low
And dim strange ghosts of daylight come and go,
Gold-footed where the shadows leap and flee.
And I fancy that perhaps a memory        5
Lingers of silent moments we dared not know,
Of words said softly, laughter sudden and slow,
And tokens and signs and symbols we dared not see.
I picture you alone in your dark room,
Curled in a deep chair, quiet and lost in thought,        10
Pondering curious riddles in the gloom:
Of one who came, and something that he brought;
Of one who worked, and something that he wrought;
Of one who searched, and something, that he sought.
