Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
A Rich Gentleman
By Max Michelson
 
From “Masks”

YOUR nostrils sniff the air,
Your ears stand alert:
Near you, like wolves in the forest,
Lurk other people’s poverty and suffering;
And though your heart is robust—        5
Tough, like the cheek of a country girl,
You dare not trust it.
