MacDonald, F.W. In a Nook with a Book.
Mackail, J. W. Life of William Morris .
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).
