Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Glaucopis
By Richard Aldington
 
O MAIDENS, whom I loved
And now love not at all,
Nor even the memory of your shadowy faces,
Who loved me also,
Striving with delicate and sensuous days        5
To thrall my soul,
Behold!
From the hush and the dusk
Come, like the whisper of dawn,
Her frail, her magical feet.        10
From the desert she blossoms,
A flower of the winds,
Tremulous, shaken by love.
 
Ah Gods!
And I may not hearken        15
Nor stoop to the flower.
