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

HOW bitter must the smile
Of the wise Future be
Behind her veil!
O letter of last year,
Can my hopes and aims,        5
    Like moons,
Have changed so?
Those dead desires,
Like shriveled fruits,
Hang, shamed,        10
On the bough of time.
