Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Eunice Tietjens
From “Facets”

MY heart has fed today.
My heart, like hind at play,
Has grazed in fields of love, and washed in streams
Of quick, imperishable dreams.
In moth-white beauty shimmering,        5
Lovely as birches in the moon glimmering,
From coigns of sleep my eyes
Saw dawn and love arise.
And like a bird at rest,
Steady in a swinging nest,        10
My heart at peace lay gloriously
While winds of ecstasy
Beat round me and above.
I am fulfilled of love.
