Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Holy Light
By John Hall Wheelock
 
WHERE Life like a candle burns
  In the darkness of the night,
Moth-like my lost spirit yearns
  Nearer in his circling flight.
 
Luringly her beauty draws        5
  Onward with each shuddering breath,
Till I flutter, till I pause
  In the radiance of death.
 
I am flaming, I am fled—
  All around you reigns the night;        10
But my agony has fed
  You a moment, holy light!
