Mary Webb. “Eros.” Typescript poem, one leaf, 8½″ x 8″, white wove watermarked paper. Sixteen lines in two stanzas, two ink corrections. Creased, with a small hole in upper-left corner, and a small tear in right margin. Penciled number “41” in upper-right corner. Webb imagines the god of love as a destructive, pitiless being driven by urgency, yet says “let him come!”
