Bernstein, Yetta. “The Elves.” Creative Young Canada: Collection of Verse, Drawings and Musical Compositions by Young Canadians from Seven to Twenty Years of Age. Ed. Aletta E. Marty. Toronto: Dent, 1928. 90.

Yetta Bernstein contributed both poem and drawing to the Toronto Globe‘s “Circle of Young Canada” section, from which the selections in Creative Young Canada are taken. In this case, it seems that the poem is more an adornment to the illustration than the other way around. “Yetta,” as she signed herself, also contributed illustrations to decorate others’ poems in the collection.
