Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Eleanor Hammond
THERE is a little room in my heart
Where we used to live together—
A very cozy little room.
You walked out carelessly,
Leaving the door half open;        5
But I closed and locked it, crying.
Sometimes when I pass the door
I wish you would come back,
Throw wide the seaward windows,
Kindle the fire again;        10
Although I know we are both better
Out here in the changing, crowded world—
For, after all, it is a very little room.
