Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
“I have drifted along this river”
By Richard Aldington
I HAVE drifted along this river
Until I moored my boat
By these crossed trunks.
Here the mist moves
Over fragile leaves and rushes,        5
Colorless waters and brown, fading hills.
You have come from beneath the trees
And move within the mist,
A floating leaf.
O blue flower of the evening,        10
You have touched my face
With your leaves of silver.
Love me, for I must depart.
