From the Preface:—
This collection contains all the poems I wish to preserve from my
previously published work. It starts with a poem I wrote in 1902 when I
was sixteen, and ends with several written during the past twelve
months. I have slightly revised some of my earlier work in places where
I was originally most dissatisfied with it, and yet found myself, at the
time, incapable of emending it. No poems included in the last group have
appeared in book form before. [Suggest a different description.]
