Scholarly Commentary

Guest Editor: PC Fleming


This poem is by William Fulford, and probably the first he ever wrote. Dixon recalls Fulford reading this poem to him soon after meeting him, in June 1851 (Mackail 42), and F.W. MacDonald also remembers Fulford reading this poem to him (MacDonald 213).
