Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Outcast
By Louise Ayres Garnett
 
From “Songs of Silence”

THE WATERS cast him out:
A toppled tower of ivory,
His naked body lies upon the sands—
Nameless,
Beautiful,        5
Unreachable.
 
Like a cloudy breath
The Seeking-thing within him
Has gone forth
To claim identity.        10
 
I cannot weep as I see him—
Beautiful,
Venturesome,
Stripped and free.
