Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
Don Giovanni
By Arthur Davison Ficke
  IT is not lust that leads me,
It is not evil drives me;
But beauty, beauty, beauty,
Calling afar off.
  Prophet and poet know my urge and torture;        5
Hermit and dreamer are my errant brothers.
For I am mad with unattainèd beauty
Calling afar off….
  The fairer morrow, the horizons
Lighted beyond old borders,        10
The world’s one savior—beauty
Calling afar off.
