Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Florence Ripley Mastin
From “School Room Sketches”

A LITTLE pulse throbbed in his throat
When he recited. Homely things,
Wee thoughts like grubs, had fairy wings
For him. His dark eyes held the sun—
Mystical; in a room unlit,        5
He was my taper. And the tune
Of his voice was like the laugh in June
Of a child surprised with loveliness!
