Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Sacrament
By Pauline D. Partridge
 
MY body, dear, like bread I break
For Love’s sweet sake;
My soul like wine I give
Each day, that you may take,
And taking, love and live.        5
 
But when the altar empty lies
Before my eyes,
The veil in twain is rent—
For me alone the sacrifice
Has been a sacrament.        10
