Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Mary Carolyn Davies
MY lover has no lute to sing to me,
  My lover has no song to mark me fair;
His lips are strong and silent utterly,
  He lays no foolish kiss upon my hair.
My lover does not hold within his eyes,        5
  Where all may see, a torch of love aglow.
No tears he gives to me, nor any sighs.
  My lover speaks not, but I know, I know!
