SERIES 2. POETRY AND POETRY NOTES AND FRAGMENTS, ca. 1955-1984.

Scope and Content Note

Poems arranged alphabetically by title or, in the case of untitled poems, by first line. Notes and poetry fragments are found at the end of this series. Unrelated poems with the same title are differentiated by the notation [1] or [2]. An attempt has been made to keep different versions of the same poem together, although each title is listed. In general, Micheline's spelling and capitalization have been preserved in the listings. In cases of an obvious misspelling in the first word of the title, poems have been alphabetized with the correct spelling. For example, "Thier [sic] is no truth" has been filed as if it were "There is no truth."
