Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Vagabonds
By Alice D. Lippman
 
I
WHEN you flashed
Like the sudden sun
On my blinking eyes,
Frightened little words
Scampered to my throat        5
And tumbled from my lips—
Strange vagabonds.
 
II
They envy me
When they call him mine.
My soul envies        10
My lips and my arms.
 
III
You kissed me once.
But if you kiss me again
Because you kissed me once,
I will kill you.        15
