A Moongate in My Wall

Collected Poetry of Mary Custis Vezey

Olga Bakich

A Moongate in My Wall is a collection of poems and translations by a remarkable yet little-known bilingual Russian-American poet, Mary Custis Vezey (1904-1994). Born in New York to a Russian mother and an American father and related to the famous Custis family, she lived in St. Petersburg, Harbin, Beijing, Shanghai, and San Francisco, published three books of poetry, and left many unpublished works. Her fine poetic heritage is reproduced here in its entirety.
