Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Song
By D. H. Lawrence
 
LOVE has crept into her sealed heart
As a field bee, black and amber,
Breaks from the winter-cell, to clamber
Up the warm grass where the sunbeams start.
 
Love has crept into her summery eyes,        5
And a glint of colored sunshine brings
Such as his along the folded wings
Of the bee before he flies.
 
But I with my ruffling, impatient breath
Have loosened the wings of the wild young sprite;        10
He has opened them out in a reeling flight,
And down her words he hasteneth.
 
Love flies delighted in her voice:
The hum of his glittering, drunken wings
Sets quivering with music the little things        15
That she says, and her simple words rejoice.
