An Epithalamion (a song sung to a soon-to-be bride by her maidens) [poster]

Chicago: Women’s Graphics Collective, [197-]. Approximately 25x17 inch silkscreened poster, very good, depicting a sculpture of two women on their knees embracing, poem at left by H.D. lamenting a woman's pending marriage and separation from the community of women.

"Never more will the wind / cherish you again, / never more will the rain. / Never more / shall we find you bright / in the snow and wind. / The snow is melted, / the snow is gone, / and you are flown: / Like a bird out of our hand, / like a light out of our heart, / you are gone. / H.D." Hilda "H.D." Doolittle was associated with the Imagist poets of the early 20th century; her work on Sapphic themes and her personal story made her a subject of interest for Second Wave feminists.
