Object Description
Landscape with bay and sailboats, in muted tones. One of eight linocuts with poems by Eleanor Hammack Northcross.

Beyond the magic isle there is no farther west. The East, old and grim, has forgotten how to play, But the outpost of the West, athwart he sunset sky, Keeps holiday.

All the birds are caroling of summer and delight, The wet sands are singing under happy feet, The little waves that break along the curving shore The song repeat.

Morning wakes the magic isle, kissing its brow; The hills echo laughter till setting of the sun Veils the isle in beauty. The stars keep guard When day is done.

-E. H. Northcross
