Many Wings is an anthology of poetic works prepared by Isabel Fiske Conant who was a poet and author active in the
first decades of the 20th Century.
The frontispiece contributed by Walker to Many Wings is a superb example of his highly detailed monotone work. This
wonderful piece of art is associated with the following poem, carrying the title of the anthology, Many Wings:
Many wings are beating
Into the wind.
To their adventure
Earth, sea, be kind!
Dream-plumed, for voyaging,
One after one,
Out past the sun.
Wind-thrilled between worlds,
Spreads their desire ...
Be kind to many wings,
Air, water, fire!
