Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Difference
By Dorothy Butts
 
From “The Passers-by”

IF you will wander, so shall I—
In opposite directions ply
Our irresistible two ways
Into the nights, into the days.
The east and west shall draw apart,        5
Like magnets, your heart from my heart.
.    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .
How vain our tears now we have seen
That east and west have common lures.
You were my magnet—I was yours,
With all the world between.        10
