Mary Webb. “The Snowdrop.” Typescript poem, one leaf, 6″ x 6″, white wove watermarked paper. Twelve lines in two stanzas. Trimmed from a larger sheet. Penciled number “70” in upper-right corner. This poem is a celebration of the coming springtime. Webb welcomes the season when “spring awakes and laughs across the snow,” with fine detail drawn from her close observation.
