Mary Webb. “Little Things.” Manuscript poem, one leaf, 8¼″ x 7⅜″, on off-white ruled laid paper, twenty lines in five stanzas, black ink, with one correction. Irregularly trimmed from a larger sheet, and with a few small margin tears. This poem is an example of Mary’s sharp, precise observation and the keen joy she takes in the minutiae of nature.
