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

I WILL wear my gown of dusk-blue silk,
And in my hair
A crescent moon, curved like a petal.
 
From the rim of the shadowy pool
I will pluck an iris—        5
Dusk-blue, shading to purple,
Faint-scented as the breath of sandalwood.
 
Softly
I will come through the drooping willows.
The leaves will catch at my gown,        10
Dusk-blue
In the purple shadows.
The grasses will whisper, sighing,
As if they knew.
 
Down at the wall        15
I will wait alone in the darkness;
And close my eyes,
Dreaming that I hear your voice.
