Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Frances Shaw
HOW can I, wordless, make you understand,
When you so gently stroke my withered hand
And ask me if I like my tea,
And if the long night rested me?
  O girl, my body, not my heart, is dead—        5
  Tell me, oh, tell me what your lover said!
Tell how the moonlight on the garden lay,
And what is the red flower you wear today.
  I knew it once—the memory is dead.
  Tell me, oh, tell me what your lover said!        10
