Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Unworthy Love
By Mary Austin
 
HOW is it with my heart
Since I can love you?
Flawed in the casting,
So that your spirit,
When I strike it with nobleness,        5
Rings no tone truly.
 
Yet, at that flattened note,
The soul of every sense,
Shouldering each on each,
Runs and looks out of the windows,        10
While deep in the house of life
Age-long, unimagined instincts
Bay at the voice of the master.
