My Dear Friend:
What shall I do with this, burn it or publish it? I am not a poet, as I hardly need to say. But I began this ten years ago, now and then adding a line or two, on a quiet Sunday. Last Sunday night, in the quiet, I finished it. What shall I do with it? Burn it, or is it worth the light of day?
Lovingly,
Herron
