1p., 8vo. On yellow paper. On lightly-aged paper, with slight wear and creasing along one edge, and thin stub from previous mounting adhering to the reverse. The poem is twenty lines long, arranged in five stanzas, and signed at the foot 'George Steele Seymour'. Beneath this, in Seymour's hand: 'Special greetings to Mrs. Steele in Los Angeles - August 23, 1918.' The first stanza reads: 'By the side of the road stands Emerson's house, | A house unpretentious and plain, | Where wild roses grow, and soft breezes blow | The scent of sweet grass after rain.' The poem concludes: 'By the side of the road stands Emerson's house, | No statlier one can you find. | To have it were meed of good fortune indeed, | But O! to have Emerson's mind!' Steele edited the Bookfellow Poetry Album, 1938. The poem does not appear to have been published. The Ralph Waldo Emerson House is located at 28 Cambridge Turnpike, Concord, Massachusetts, and is now a museum and National Historic Landmark. N° de ref. de la librería 12732
