Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Compensation
By Anna Spencer Twitchell
 
THE YEARS have taken all I had:
  Swift senses, supple grace,
Gold from my hair, light from my eyes,
  The roses from my face.
 
The years have taken all I had:        5
  Now shall they give to me,
Who from their hands in one keen breath
  Take immortality.
