Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Louis Untermeyer
IS it a tribute or betrayal when,
  Turning from all the sweet, accustomed ways,
I leave your lips and eyes to seek you in
            Some other face?
Why am I searching after what I have,        5
  And going far to find the near at hand?
I do not know—I only know I crave
            To find you at the end.
I only know that Love has many a hearth,
  That Hunger has an endless path to roam,        10
And Beauty is the dream that drives the earth
            And leads me home.
