      • Dedication: To My Mother
      • Epigraph: Our tokens of love are for the most part barbarous. Cold and lifeless, because they do not represent our life. The only gift is a portion of thyself. Therefore let the farmer give his corm; the miner a gem; the sailor, coral and shells; the painter, his picture; and the poet, his poem - Emmerson Essays
