- An illustrated 23 inch high by 11-1/4 inch wide broadside printed in gray & black on fine light speckled grayish tan paper. Richard Wilbur's 2 part poem, is printed down the center of the page. The first 29 lines descriptive of the wall is followed by 36 lines in 9 stanzas paying homage, within its verse, to William Cullen Bryant: "...It is not drum-taps / For a lost race of giants, / But perhaps says something, here / In Mr. Bryant's / Homiletic woods, / Of the brave art of forage / And the good of a few nuts / In burrow-storage;...." A beautiful and perceptive illustration by Tadao Yamanaka flows down the left side of the page and across the bottom. A tall willow with roots at the gate to the wall behind which a monument marks Bryant's birthplace. There are light horizontal creases at the top and bottom of the broadside. Very good.

This attractive broadside was published in a limited edition of only 100 copies "In honor of the 70th Anniversary of the Cummington Community for the Arts....". Scarce.
