Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Chapter I–V
By Pearl Andelson
 
From “Worker in Marble”

        So I begin
More bitter chiselled words.
Not one soft word
To ease my heart.


I
HOW long ago since I brought you into my heart!
And you still stand,
Cold effigy of love,
Letting none pass.
 
II
Shadows
        5
In a wind;
Two contend for place—
How shall I know my mind?
 
III
Like an unhappy ghost
I lingered        10
In the dark corners
Of his soul.
 
IV
His eyes
Are gray
And solitary        15
As the sea.
 
V
Do not drop your head,
So—upon your breast.
My eyes hold all it was best
I leave unsaid.        20
