Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Epilogue
By Helen Birch-Bartlett
 
From “A Line-a-day for Certain Lovers”

BLUE-PURPLE,
The shadow of the earth
Circles the long horizon.
 
My life is circled
By the shadow of your love.        5
 
Blue-purple out there,
And over the blue
A rose-pink mist that rises—
That rising, fades.
 
No frail, flushed aureole        10
Crowns the shadow in my heart….
Unless this:
That you suffer a little and are often alone
Because of your love
That breathed upon such a pale flame.        15
