Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Anodyne
By Marion Strobel
 
From “That Year”

THE DAYS wear thin with longing—
There is a warmth in emptiness.
My palms have pressed so long
Against the fragile surface
Of these lonely hours—        5
Almost I touch your fingers,
Almost
I hear your voice.
I stand in the shadow of your absence
Looking through windows of sunlight:        10
Soon—soon you will be fashioned
Out of my longing,
You will live from the breath
Of my desire.
