“I will be free,

No lover’s kiss

To bind me to earth,

No bliss of love

To counteract

Actual bliss,

(the wind,

The rain)

No pain of love

To cut the fibre of joy

That the wind is cold,

That the old, old streets

Are beautiful

And the way to the temple,

And the court will be bountiful

With box-tree

And Myrtle,

That the grove has recompense

Of dedmet

And mehet-tree incense,

And that some day

I will care:” 


From In The Rain by H. D.


“...The present volume has no propagandist intentions. It is not fighting for anything. It flaunts the Imagist banner not as a challenge, but merely as a symbol. And the imagists are here mustered not for a charge, but for a parade. We are to consider and to enjoy them as independent artists, who once upon a time (only fifteen years ago) found it necessary to unite in the assertation of their right to artistic independence.” Glenn Hughes San Francisco, July 6th, 1929.


An interesting and scarce anthology of 26 poems in good condition.
