Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1968
17 x 12.5cm, 2pp. The card is the one of a series that joins boat names together to tell a quasi-story or visual poem. Here Be in Time leads onto Fruitful Vine. The rhyme is by luck but together it creates an optimistic epigram and metaphor. Fine example. Murray has this as Card 4.9. Murray mis-identifies (not unusual) the date here – on the back it is clearly 1968 but the Catalogue Raisonne has it as 1967.
