Youthful exuberance; childhood fears; adolescent idealism, preoccupation with self, hubris; wonder and mystery; love, joy, passion; treachery and betrayal, heartbreak, hopelessness, pain, longing; vanity, jealousy and pride; sadness, loss, remembrance and change of perspective, death. In this brief volume, Grace McCrea Lindahl explores the range of human experiences from beginning to end, her lyrical narrative couched in subtle observations of nature. These poems, written in 1937 when she was just 28 years old, are the only surviving evidence of her talents. In spite of her youth, she displayed remarkable insight into the joys, sorrows and foibles of the human condition. Grace worked and wrote her own newspaper column in a major Minneapolis newspaper. During that period she took a poetry class at the University of Minnesota and composed the body of poetry presented here. As she approached 30 years of age, she married and raised three children who adored her for the sensitivities and humanity that inhabited her and were also reflected in her poetry. Her children never had the opportunity to read any of her poems until they were high school age or older.
