Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By D. H. Lawrence
From “War Films”

AS I went down the street in my rose-red pelerine
  Some one stopped me and said, “Your lover is hurt.”
“Oh, bring him to me,” I said. “Oh, lay him between
  My arms, let me cover him up in my skirt.”
And you—oh, see the myriad doves that walk        5
  Beneath the steps of St. Paul’s! Catch several
And kill for Aphrodite. Don’t speak, do not talk!—
  One of you kindle a fire to consume them withal.
