Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Because
By Oscar Williams
 
From “Golden Darkness”

BECAUSE I have not kissed as yet one burning mouth,
I have kissed a hundred.
Because I have not looked into one pair of eyes,
A hundred have haunted me.
Because I have not lived one hour in passion’s flame,        5
I have died in a hundred others.
