Curator Comment:
Written by Geraldine Plunkett, this publication was printed in 1917 by Colm O'Lochlainn at the Candle Press. The poems in this slim pamphlet use much nature imagery, but the frontispiece, the only illustration included, seems not to correspond closely to any of them.
Note on artwork:
A landscape view along a track, framed by tall bushy trees on the left and and a hedge on the right, creating a vista across low hills and a meandering river. The shadowy foreground, in which a few patches of light fall to highlight the uneven way, contrasts with the bright middle ground and background.
