Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Litany
By Allene Gregory
 
SAINT GENEVIEVE, whose sleepless watch
  Saved threatened France of old,
Above the ship that carries him
  Your sacred vigil hold.
 
Where all the fair green fields you loved        5
  Are scarred with bursting shell,
Joan the Maid who fought for France—
  Oh, guard your young knight well.
 
But if by sea or if by land
  God set death in his way—        10
Then, Mother of the Sacrificed,
  Teach me what prayer to pray!
