Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Presage
By F. S. Putnam
 
HE has loved me for my gaiety,
  Not for quiet moods or thoughts that bless;
He has loved me for my wayward grace,
  Not because he knew my tenderness.
 
So our love is transient, and as frail        5
  As a moth or darting dragonfly.
There’s no memory of peace to heal
  Any wound that comes. Our love will die.
