Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Helen Birch-Bartlett
From “A Line-a-day for Certain Lovers”

I NEVER forgot you,
And I loved your silences.
I believed in you, and yet I could not believe.
I was both constant and inconstant.
You were faithless—yet immeasurably true.        5
A time came
When your memory swung like a bright pendulum
Backwards and forwards in my brain,
Channeling a groove.
Even had I loved you,        10
I would have chosen the same way.
