Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Grace Hazard Conkling
YOU should have seen the griffin in the pine-tree
With stars for eyes!
You are my own,
Mine, though I never found you.
There was the hollow valley        5
With its river,
There was the big magnolia
Strung with moons …
I look for you …
Love makes my feet unsteady.        10
One day
The perul in the garden was on fire with tanagers …
I saw it burning.
I wonder where you were?
Yesterday the flower woman brought me violets …        15
Cape jasmine … dark roses …
When are you coming?
Today the yucca has finished building her tower of ivory …
It is late …
What excuse will you offer?        20
