“From a hitherto undiscovered manuscript book now in the possession of her father, Arthur C. Pickthall of Toronto, are chosen by Lorne Pierce and printed for a few friends.”

From “The Naiad, and five other poems”:


MY heart’s grown empty that was filled
With such wild grace as summers yield,
With gold the early gorse had spilled
And lovely tares from every field.

Bare is my heart. O star, O light,
From your strange state of lonely air,
Lest my poor heart hold but the night,
Let one lost gleam inhabit there.

Featuring artwork by Sophia Erdahl.
