“ ‘The Wonderful Winds of God!’/Perchance it is they who wrought/In sculpture a poet’s face/Far up on the mountain top.” Poem ends: “The music he dreamed is done,/Ended in measures and bars,/A rare, finished symphony/Completed under the stars.” Poem accompanied by a photograph of Mt. Shasta captioned: “...Mt. Shasta snow covered, showing the long hair, white beard, and outline of the features of Joaquin Miller, poet of the Sierra. The peak at the left furnishes a striking resemblance to the poet whose description of Shasta brought him world-wide fame.” 23. Literature: Poetry. [MS1123] [MGK]
