Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Moireen Fox a Cheavasa
DARKNESS and the wind are between the tall stones of the temple.
No priest is there, no voice, no fire on the altar;
Silence alone and darkness, and the mocking wind.
This is the end of dreams. O empty sky,
O deaf and silent earth, O broken dreams!        5
I have besought the dust that my hands hold.
