Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Dream-kiss
By Marjorie Allen Seiffert
 
From “Gallery of Paintings”

MOMENT of delight—most delicate,
Cool as a rose is cool;
Swift and silent as a pool
To mirror wings in flight;
Passionate as frost is passionate        5
With patterns intricate and white;
Pure as music in the night,
Far off, yet intimate—
It came
Poignant as beauty on swift feet of flame.        10
It paused … was gone … most delicate
Moment of delight.
