Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
Pierrot and Columbine
By Margaret DeLaughter
From “In the Night Watches”

THE GODS are dead, and we are old;
  And we are old, for now at last,
For now at last our hearts are cold;
  Our hearts are cold, and love is past.
Our love is past, and even so,        5
  And even so our dreams have fled.
Our dreams have fled, and so we know,
  And so we know the gods are dead!
