Figure descriptions
The hand-drawn illustration title, poem text, and byline appear on a blank sheet at the center of the page. The poem text features all capitals and the title lettering is composed of vegetals. Some words begin with an outlined letter. The sheet containing the poem text is tied to a pole on the right side of the illustration. It appears to blow in the wind. Grasses and bell-shaped flowers grow below the sheet, lining the bottom edge of the illustration. A decorative band lines the left and top edges of the illustration, connecting to the top of the aforementioned pole. This band is composed of loosely braided vines and vegetals; several small flowers are tucked within the braid. Together, the decorative band, the pole, and the plant material form a figurative border around the central sheet. The illustration background is darkly shaded. Full page.
