Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
On the Heights
By Konstantin Balmont
 
Translated from the Russian by Edith Chapman Tracy

IT is exquisite, arrived at the outermost limit,
No longer to thirst for anything.
How poignantly you yielded yourself and became intoxicated
With the fierce wine of my presence!
Sensitively the last veil        5
Completely melted between us.
Oh, how beautiful, in the temple of the woods,
That irretrievable hour!
