Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Strange
By Josephine Pinckney
 
WE believed
That the tides of our being
Set to each other.
 
But when we came to speak,
There was a distance between us        5
More wide and strange
Than the silvery waste
Of the marsh under the moon.
 
And your voice came
From that untrodden stillness        10
Like the calling of some marsh creature
Disturbed—seeking.
 
And I, too, was dumb—frozen,
Like the flood-tide
And moon-silent marsh.        15
