Edward Thomas and Oxford
As I began this heading I wasn't sure what I meant. It could be about Edward Thomas's book 'Oxford', published 1903, republished recently by OUP.

The second stanza is about the collection of letters between Edward and Robert Frost, 'Elected Friends', edited by Matthew Spencer.
Odd, too, in St Louis, seeing in the Left Bank bookstore
That book of his to-and-fro with Robert Frost.
I bought it on impulse - his finest writing
So lightly right I can't get away from him,
Though all the time I know he isn't there.

Apropos of none of the above, I received permission from the States to post the picture of the Frost children at Beaconsfield I removed. Courtesy of Plymouth State University.
