Primavera Approaching

If it had no pencil,
Would it try mine -
Worn - now - and dull - sweet,
Writing much to thee.
If it had no word -
Would it make the Daisy,
Most as big as I was -
When it plucked me?
Emily Dickinson

This address book was inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Her verses are throughout on each dividing page along with hand painted letters in alternating colors of pink and green. The colors echo a spring garden, a most loyal companion of Miss Dickinson. This hardcover address book is hand stitched and bound, covered with a cloth napkin with a bamboo pattern, green leather, ribbon, and buttons. The end papers are a light green hand-laid paper (not by me, however).
