Re: ~[solo poetry] Stars of the Desert - Laurence Hope

A note to a prospective DPL or MC - I intend to use the full disclaimer for the first and final poems, but the shorter poetry intro/outro for everything else.

Re: [solo poetry] Poems - Jenkins

Yet ‘neath a curtain of translucent dew, Bathed in the rays...

Re: SOLO Geraldine Jewsbury in Jerrold's Shilling Magazine-ans
