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,

Into star-weather,

Out past the sun.


Wind-thrilled between worlds,

Spreads their desire ...

Be kind to many wings,

Air, water, fire!
