Date of revision. This reworking of a poem in WBY's story ‘The Twisting of the Rope’, as published in Stories of Red Hanrahan (1905), was finalized between 10 and 28 Jul. 1907, but the revision had been essentially made much earlier than this, by 18 Apr. 1905 (see Textual and publication history). WBY first sent A.H. Bullen the older version of the verses on 10 Jul. 1907, then on 28 Jul. sent him instead the fully revised poem (CL 4, 694, 700).
