Re: [aloha-donblanding] Rogue River Art
- Hi Jerry,
I found that artwork in "Hawaii Says Aloha" (1955) on page
159. (next to last page) It is printed in black and measures 6.1
by 8.85 inches.
It is titled "Rising Moon" with a very short verse -
"The moon is a great gold coin tossed to those ragged vagabonds, the clouds."
Thanks for inspiring me to leaf thru ALL of Don's books.
