Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Syncrasy
By A. A. Rosenthal
 
I AM a reed
Wind-throated and rain-tuned.
You are the player,
Wise as the world.
 
What will you blow through me, Softmouth?        5
What sorrows must I echo
From your honied lips
To learn the sweetness of pain?
What lachrymations must I silver
To learn the bitterness of love?        10
 
I am a reed
Waiting and silent.
You are the player,
Searching your heart.
