QuotationBob [MacGregor] sent me your Wild Anemone [& Other Poems], which I reproach you for never having told me about. It is a very fine little book. I like your Propertian and Catullan trends, though they are in some sense refershingly innocent. Or at least very healthy, put it that way. But there are many fine an subtle variations of mood that one ejous very much in the book.
