Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Recordition
By Marx G. Sabel
 
I HAVE hailed you.
Out of centuries, out of aeons,
During this fractional part of an infinitesimal clock-tick of time,
I have seen you,
And hailed you.        5
 
I have yearned toward you,
Burning.
I have looked into your eyes
During this fractional part of an infinitesimal clock-tick of time.
 
Quicker than the shadow of a monoplane        10
Passing over the shadow of a humming-bird,
Shall we two pass,
And be to all men’s memory
Inconceivably remote.
 
Yet it is recorded        15
That out of all time,
During this fractional part of an infinitesimal clock-tick of time,
I have seen you and hailed you.
It is recorded!
