Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Hortense Flexner
OUT of the night I hear a voice,
  Out of the sea a cry.
The swift, white arms of the reaching waves
  Toss as we pass them by;
The foam hands grasp in the emptiness,        5
  And sink in the black to die.
I lean to the night, I lean to the sea,
  To the round on round of blue,
Where the barren stretch of the moon-laced waves
  Divides the world in two;        10
There is no comfort in the dark,
  I may not come to you.
