Three Cline Poems from Newspapers

From one of Cline's scrapbooks, here are three poems.  The contents of this particular scrapbook dates from around 1915 to 1921, when Cline lived and worked in Detroit.  Two of the clippings are of short poems.  Here is "Wounded" from The Detroit News, 4 June 1920.

And here is "Memorial" from The Detroit News, 13 June 1920.

And finally, here is an undated clipping of one of my favorites of Cline's poetry, "Mass in the Valley." This poem is known to have appeared in The Midland for June-August 1924 (and later in After-Walker), but this clipping, presumably from The Detroit News, would date it probably to some time in 1921.
