Mary Webb. “In Dark Weather.” “Sunday Pictorial / 1921.” written in ink (and crossed out) in upper-right corner. Typescript poem, one leaf, 4¼″ x 5″, white wove paper, mounted on white ruled paper. Twelve lines in three stanzas, typed in purple ink. Carelessly cut from a larger sheet, and with a few ink smudges. Webb’s expresses faith that, despite the bleak weather and landscape, life has not forgotten rebirth and spring will return.
