Illustrated. 8vo, yellow and tan stapled card covers, lettered in black. Canadian Quaker Pamphlets Number 13. "Poetry gives natural expression to the Quaker experience. The very symbols and rituals of our worship turn out to be verbal metaphors delivered out of the pregnant silence to an appreciative audience - that's poetry! In Threading Light, all the aspects of our Society are covered - the depths of soul-discovery in Meeting, the re- spect for that of God in other people, the need for improvement of life through social witness, and the dwelling in God's world, nature. Reading these poems gives a new insight into what's going on inside our fellow Friends, who may be too often too silent, or too wordy, for our appreciation of their true understandings... or perhaps it's our lives and minds that are often too busy to listen closely. Now may we enjoy an opportunity to hear each other speak truth in the noise and the silence." (from the Preface by William Gray). The poets in alphabetical order: Bonnie Day, Hubert Evans, William Gray, Ramelle Harkins, Dee Mary Hyde, David Jackman, George Johnston, Helen Lawson, Dorothy McDade, Sylvia Mangalam Y Elizabeth Oxlade, ED Huber* Evans Mary Pollard, ยป Julia Warwick, and Susan Wilmer.
