The setting here is Drake’s Bay. Some of the prints in this edition were hand colored. The title comes from a poem by Max Ehrmann. A total of thirty-nine out of fifty were printed in addition to several artist’s proofs.

Quietly I Go My Way

All round is haste, confusion, noise.

For power and wealth men stretch the day

From dawn till dusk. But quietly

I go my way.

For glitter, show, to taunt the crowd,

Desire-tossed in wild dismay,

Men sell their souls. But quietly

I go my way.

The green of all the fields is mine,

The stars, the night, the wind at play.

Apeaceful heart, while quietly

I go my way.

Max Ehrmann
