Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Sara Teasdale
From “Memories”

LET it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,
  Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold.
Let it be forgotten forever and ever—
  Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.
If anyone asks, say it was forgotten        5
  Long and long ago—
As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
  In a long forgotten snow.
