Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Dirge
By Helen Dudley
 
A NIGHT of strange longing
Of dark unrest
Has fallen over the sands.
 
Like ghosts that are thronging,
Pale shapes from the waters        5
Arise and I see their hands.
 
I hear a faint weeping;
Autumn is dead;
Withered the leaves on the ground.
 
A gray mist is creeping        10
Out of the north
With the stealth of an Indian’s hound.
