Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
A Shy Child
By Louise Redfield
 
THEY coax and beguile,
As though teasingly
A squirrel in a tree.
You do not speak or smile.
 
In your eyes flit wise        5
Thoughts that wonder weaves
Of their silly words;
Safe in your grave eyes,
Safe as little birds
Busy behind leaves.        10
