See ENL IV:224 for Parsons (1893-1981). "These poems breathe [Parsons'] love of Newfoundland. You will notice that practically every verse is about Newfoundland. If he writes about the traits of people, be assured that they are Newfoundland people, or at least people that came to live in Newfoundland. Mr Parsons is in love with Newfoundland, and even her defects are lovable in his eyes. I can believe that our author derives the most lively satisfaction from every poem that he gets written on some aspect or facet or incident of Newfoundland life." - from Mr Smallwood's Foreword.
