Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Florence Kiper Frank
From “Women”
Studies in the Erotic Emotion

“I HAD sought you, seeking her.
You were lost; she was near.
Oh, believe this of me, dear!”
“Men are queer.
Love’s a twisted, bitter thing.        5
I must cling
To some inner fact of trust:
I’ve your child here. I must
Say it to my sickening youth,
‘It’s the truth!’”        10
“Dust and shame are on my head!”
“Quiet now! Let’s go to bed.”
