Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Frederic Manning
  DO ye mock me, wantons, that I come among ye
Drunken, bedecked with garlands,
Like a white, sacrificial bull?
Laugh, then!
So Cypris, laughing, shake one petal down        5
From her rose-braided hair!
Honeyed with kisses, be profuse
The glowing purple that brims up this gold!
Laugh then, and mock, but kiss me: for what man
Would come among ye sober?        10
Wise, I come,
Borne on Silenus’ ass to praise Eros.
