Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Quatrains
By Ruth Hall
 
THE WOLF AT THE DOOR

The Russian traveler in the story, lest
  The wolf attack, casts out his precious store.
So we surrender all that we hold best,
  To drive back him who clamors at the door.
 
THE ANNIVERSARY

With no observance is my birthday set
        5
  From other times aside.
But once each year—would God I could forget!—
  Comes back the night I died.
