Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Lullaby
By Henry Bellamann
 
TEARS for your pink, curled hands—
  They must strain to hold
  The smoke-thin garments of a dream.
 
Tears for your still eyes—
  They must be pierced        5
  By the keen blades of beauty.
 
Tears for your flower feet—
  They must bloom like first spring
  On wintry plains.
 
Tears, tears for your eyes,        10
  And pink, curled hands,
  And blossom feet—tears!
