David Philip Publishers 1973 0949968145 / 9780949968142 First Edition Paperback Good No Jacket Paperback 
25 pages (complete). "Perhaps my fear/ is that we swear/ too much - we never/ leave our love / like quietly folded hands./ We touch each other's faces / with words, watching / to see each other dissolve./ And each time / we stiffen more quickly./ With every 'I love you'/ we fill the closing vein/ of silence." The covers are worn and tanned but still firm and sure and patient. The frontispage has a gift inscription to a teacher followed by signatures of her pupils. The pages are clear, assured, placid, tidy. fk
