Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Grieve Not for Beauty
By Witter Bynner
 
GRIEVE not for the invisible, transported brow
On which like leaves the dark hair grew,
Nor for the lips of laughter that are now
Laughing inaudibly in sun and dew,
Nor for those limbs that, fallen low        5
And seeming faint and slow,
Shall yet pursue
More ways of swiftness than the swallow dips
Among .. and find more winds than ever blew
The straining sails of unimpeded ships!        10
Mourn not!—yield only happy tears
To deeper beauty than appears!
