BD. Edmund Blunden

140. It shall be written. In Season’s Greetings. Tokyo: International House of Japan, 1960.

Eight lines about a house in which all who come found a ‘natural unity’, printed inside a Christmas card from the International House of Japan. Kirkpatrick (187) suggests that the use of the poem in this way was not authorised by Blunden. A reprint in 160 includes an editor’s note saying the lines were written for Matsumoto Shigeharu, director of the International House in 1960.
