SHOES OF THE WIND BY HILDA CONKLING
New and delightful verse by the author of "Poems by a Little Girl." This volume contains poems made by Hilda in the two years since the publication of the first volume. They show that she has lost nothing of the childish unconsciousness of her singing and that she is growing in humanness and vision.
Louis Untermeyer, in "Modern American Poetry" says: "Every poem bears its own stamp of unaffected originality. . . . This child not only sees, feels and hears with the concentration of a child-artist, she communicates the results of her perceptions with the sensitivity of a master-craftsman .''
Amy Lowell, in the N. Y. Evening Post, says: "Hilda Conkling writing poetry is no child, despite the calendar, she is that ageless thing, a genius, for the moment at least, and even if she proves unable to carry the proud title into maturity."
