Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Lamentation
By Iris Barry
 
From “Shadow Songs”

CHRYSANTHEMUMS and late roses
And the plane-leaf’s fall—
All that is left us now.
Hoarsely the flower-girls cry,
Pale shake the street-lamp lights;        5
Chilled gusts come puffing by,
Sigh the poor year away.
All that is left us now
Regrets without perfume; dead thoughts;
Chrysanthemums, and late roses.        10
