Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Driftwood
By Emmy Veronica Sanders
 
TO the dim-lit shore of the mind
Strange things come drifting
When the tide is high.
To the shore of the mind
Little waves run        5
Lifting,
With a murmured melody,
Frail forms that slip
From unknown isles away into the night.
 
In the gray twilight,        10
On a crest of foam,
Strange shapes are flung,
Without name, without home,
On the shore of the mind.
Strange things are spread        15
When the tide runs high
Before eyes that are blind—
Pale things that lie
Dead
On the edge of the mind.        20
