Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Lucretia
By Florence Ripley Mastin
 
From “School Room Sketches”

YOUR beauty is as russet fruit,
Sun-warmed, fragrant,
In a northern room.
 
Down in your eyes I hear the young girls sing
In Toledo’s summer fields.        5
Your step is firm as though it trod the grape,
And your dark head is high as though you bore
To me a brimming gourd.
