Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Morris Gilbert
From “Episodes”

YOU came and stood there in the failing light,
  A sorceress who told her mysteries.
At that there grew behind my eyes a sight
  More beautiful than any woman is:
And to my blood a lifting joy came in        5
  And warmed me; as of old I flashed to try
Swiftly what that swift thing might be … and then
  I saw that there was only you and I
In that small room whose fire was almost dead.
  Of course there were the chairs, a book or so,        10
And tea set out … I got my hat and said
  That it was really time for me to go.
