Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Melodrama
By Leo Grudsky
 
YOUR lips were attentive under my kisses
To desperate whispers of escape.
 
My sobs of renunciation
Lay stunned with your gratitude.
 
And when your petals, weirdly late,        5
Have graciously covered me,
Will my heart, a bit ashamed,
Smile at a distant fragrance?
