About this Item

Green durable cloth over boards. Gold titles, cover tower illustration. 300 p. Author B&W portrait frontispiece. Poet Charles Wagner dedicated this volume to his wife, "to whom I owe much of its inspiration". In his Introduction, Braithwaite writes of poetry and its appreciation; and of Wagner as one who has "very varied interest and sympathy" in his numerous poems herein. Many are brief; others are more encompassing, more of a story told. "The Settlement of Wollaston" (Massachusetts, in Quincy just south of Boston) recounts its beauty, character, and history on p.275-293. "Poems of Parenthood" number 13, closely followed by 12 consecutive poems begin "My Lady's.". "Lines inscribed to Mr. Forbes-Robertson" offers 31 sections. "War-inspired Poems" include 20. Themes of Christianity are frequent. And there is gentle humor. Fine. No dust jacket. Signed by author. Lower corners curled. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.0002897

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
