Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Ebony
By Jeannette Marks
 
From “Shadow Songs”

On watching a beautiful black arm opening a Venetian Lantern at Fleur de Lys

EBONY, Ebony,
  Dreaming of a rose—
Flame in the flower-heart,
  Dusk in repose;
 
Jeweled eyes glistening,        5
  Dew on the leaf:
Sweet to Africa
  Is the thought of her grief.
