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

            AH, young man!—
What sort of timorous potion of love have you drunk?
  If you see my rings, how they sparkle within my ears,
You go about in a dream, with your countenance sunk,
  And children behind you taunting you to tears.        5
Why, if you saw my limbs, how they shine on my body,
  What then would you do? Then for sure you would go
And die like a dog in a hole. ’Tis strange what a shoddy
  Lover you make, such a hero in front of the foe!
