The Lover’s Catechism is a poem that L.M. Montgomery published in the March 1921 issue of Breezy Stories, a New York periodical. This issue of the magazine must have been published early, because the poem was reprinted in the Boston Globe on 13 February 1921, identifying Breezy Stories as the source. The poem also appears in A World of Songs: Selected Poems, 1894–1921.
