QuotationWhat I have just read and highly recommend: Ronald Johnson's lovely poem The Book of the Green Man "¦ It is really substantial and full of color, draftsmanship of a high order, sound, and memories most rich of things that have been forgotten to our cost, myths, and well-chosen people and places. It is one of the very finest things I have seen anywhere and I know you will like it if you have not liked it already.
