Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
To Walden
By Robert Alden Sanborn
 
THE STILLNESS of anemones,
Filling with moonlight …
 
Listen, child:
Gather the folds of your dream
Close about you,        5
And heed not
The hand of Time—
Ingratiating,
Jingling with hours,
Bright hours,        10
Gaudy …
 
(Do not be tempted to sell him
Your childhood)
 
But I,
I have nothing to offer,        15
And nothing to ask
But love—
 
Love that is hushed—
 
Still as anemones,
Filling with moonlight.        20
