Excerpt from Branches That Run, Over the Wall: A Book of Mormon Poem, and Other Writings Dear Sister: It is wonderful how well the Book of Mormon narrative fits into blank verse. It must have cost you much labor, however, in writing Branches That Run Over the Wall, to make your lines flow so smoothly and rhythmically, and I congratulate you on the accomplishment of this. I like your device of prefixing letters to show which lines are historical, which imaginary, and which contain comments on the text. This will prevent misleading the reader, and yet allow you lattitude eugh to weave into the woof of the poem some iris colored threads of idyllic romance. I was amused at the pretty conceit of naming the wives by transposing the letters of the names of their husbands. I have enjoyed reading your composition, and believe thousands will do the same. I sincerely wish it every success. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
