Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Matins
By Jeanne D’Orge
 
  THE CRUST of sleep is broken
Abruptly—
I look drowsily
Through the wide crack.
I do not know whether I see        5
Three minds, bird-shaped,
Flashing upon the bough of morning;
Or three delicately tinted souls
Butterflying in the sun;
Or three brown-fleshed, husky children        10
Sprawling hilarious
Over my bed
And me.
