Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Weariness
By D. H. Lawrence
 
WHY does the thin gray strand
Floating up from the forgotten
Cigarette between my fingers—
Why does it trouble me?
 
Ah, you will understand!        5
When I carried my mother downstairs,
A few times only, at the beginning
Of her soft-foot malady,
 
I should find for a reprimand
To my gayety, a long gray hair        10
On the breast of my coat, and I let it float,
Gray strand, towards the dark chimney.
