Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Shadows
By Muna Lee
 
From “Songs of Many Moods”

I
MY dreams of you are sombre in the twilight
  As a hedge of bramble growing interlaced—
A straggling little hedge with scarlet berries,
  Sharp to the touch, and bitter to the taste.
 
II
This is my wrong to you, O man that I love—
        5
  I who had all to give
And would have held back naught thereof,
  I whom love taught to live,
 
When you asked for a loaf of my baking,
  And a bit of blossomy spray,        10
Gave only these for your taking,
  And hid the rest away.
