Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Scherzo
By Ellen Margaret Janson
 
From “Tableaux”

MY soul is a dancer—
A dancer under shimmering willows in the sunlight.
 
The wind draws a bow across his violin.
He plays a scherzo—
Rippling notes on strings of silver.        5
 
Play faster, wind!
My feet are more swift than the leaves of the willow—
Shimmering, shimmering—
Amber shadows in the sunlight.
My feet are more swift than the laughter of waters.        10
Play faster, wind!
