Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
The Garret
By Ezra Pound
From “Contemporania”

COME let us pity those who are better off than we are.
Come, my friend, and remember
            that the rich have butlers and no friends,
And we have friends and no butlers.
Come let us pity the married and the unmarried.        5
Dawn enters with little feet
            like a gilded Pavlova,
And I am near my desire.
Nor has life in it aught better
Than this hour of clear coolness,        10
            the hour of waking together.
