Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Muriel Ciolkowska
From “Tonight”

THIS night my body is an offering—
I am carried to you.
Years I was near you
And you were far.
But tonight of all nights        5
Was not the night
To be parted.
I would fain go forth
And seek you,
And sink down by you,        10
As the flakes falling outside
Sink into the cushioned ground.
And that which is me
Is also a field
Glowing and boundless.        15
