Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Candle-light
By Alice Corbin
 
From “Candle-light and Sun”

IT might have been me in the darkened room
With the shutters closed,
Lying straight and slim
In the shuttered dusk,
In the twilight dim;        5
Like a silken husk
When the corn is gone,
Life withdrawn.
I am living, and she is dead—
It might have been me instead.        10
