Wing Your Joy!

Berkeley: Lederer, Street & Zeus Company, Inc. 1953. Hardcover. 95p., first edition hardbound blue boards gilt; lacks the jacket (find a fragment laid in, another fixed to pastedown), owner-inscribed, a very good copy. Of Swedish immigrant parents; from La Jolla to Berkeley, "for many years she has been organist at the synagogue of a large Hebrew institution in San Francisco." Over-compact and idiosyncratic; sample: "God's comb that parted Jordan / Like hair on either side, / To leave a bald egress for those / With wigs of faith inside" --oy.
