Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Floyd Dell
BLUE eyes, brown eyes, green-and-gold eyes,
  Eyes that question, doubt, deny,
Sudden-flashing, cold, hard, bold eyes—
  Here’s your answer: I am I.
Not for you and not for any        5
  Rode I into Camden town.
Barkeep, here’s my golden penny—
  Come who will and drink it down!
I’m not one to lend and borrow,
  I’m not one to overstay.        10
I shall go alone tomorrow
  Whistling, as I came today.
