Mary Webb. “The Watcher.” Typescript poem, two leaves, 10″ x 8″, white wove paper. Thirty-six lines in nine stanzas, minor corrections. Leaves numbered (in pencil) in upper-right corners. Signed “Mary Webb” at bottom of second leaf. Webb allegorizes and personifies nature: “The Watcher on the summit stands, / With a blue goblet in his hands; / He slowly drinks the glimmering years; / The sparkling laughter and the tears.”
