The lines are from her poem 'Time', which features in her 1900 collection 'Love's Argument and Other Poems', and read here: 'Time speeds on his relentless track, | And - though we beg on bended Knees - | No prophet's hand for us puts back | The shadow ten degrees.'

Printed, in a variety of sans serif point sizes, in red ink on one side of a piece of light-blue paper 26.5 x 21 cm. In fair condition on lightly aged and creased paper; folded twice and a little dog-eared. Evidently previously pinned up: there is slight loss at head and tail where torn away (at the foot this has caused loss to the word 'ANDREW'S' in the printer's slug).
