Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Madrigal
By Mabel Linn
 
MY thoughts are flocks of little birds
That sing upon my lips all day:
Gaily they wing their joyous way;
My thoughts are flocks of little birds.
 
They have no need of empty words        5
To sweetly pipe their blissful lay;
My thoughts are flocks of little birds
That sing upon my lips all day.
 
Like dipping flight of little birds
Aflash among the fragrant may,        10
More silver-white than foamy curds,
Their wings make music all the day.
 
No shepherd boy with pipe astray
Flutes half so sweet among his herds
As do my thoughts, like little birds,        15
That sing their gladness all the day.
