SONGS OF THE ROAD,

(poems) London: Smith, Elder and Co., 16 Mar 1911, viii+137(3)pp, hc;

Dedication: TO J.C.D. THIS AND ALL, February 1911

Foreword:

IF it were not for the hillocks

  You'd think little of the hills;

The rivers would seem tiny

  If it were not for the rills.

If you never saw the brushwood

  You would under-rate the trees;

And so you see the purpose

  Of such little rhymes as these.

Crowborough, 1911
