Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Interlude
By Richard Aldington
 
BLOW your tin squeals
On your reedy whistle.
 
How they come
              dancing,
White girls,
          lithe girls
In linked dance        5
From Attica!
Gay girls dancing
              in the frozen street,
Hair streaming, and white raiment
Flying,
Red lips that first were        10
Red in Ephesus.
 
Gone!
You—red-nose, piping by the Red Lion,
You?
You brought them!        15
Here, take my pennies,
“Mon semblable, mon frère!”
