Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Gone
By Benjamin Rosenbaum
 
From “Songs of Youth”

SHE is gone!
Gone?
The night was moaning
Under the whip of the wind.
I was off through it,        5
Throwing myself against its emptiness
As it clutched me
And sent a shiver down my back.
Where were the stars and the moon?—
Some thief had taken them        10
As he had taken her.
The hairless trees were talking wildly—
They were as mad as I,
But I was speechless.
The lazy hours slowly plodded along,        15
Until God took pity
And placed a red light in the east,
While Peace sprinkled her flowers everywhere.
And I found her!
