MARGON AND WHITE his thoughts into a piece of artistry is very evident. In the poem, "Time," Galsworthy offers a bit of interesting philosophy and leaves us with the two closing lines: "Then what is man's so brittle life?- The buzzing of the flies that pass!" An interesting and pleasant thought is offered in the poem, "The Seeds of Light," in which sun beams are described and comL pared to- "The little sunny smiles of God that glisten forth and die." Whoever thought of describing the moon at dawn? Rather a unique time to de- scribe the satellite, but the effect produced is quite lovely. The rhyming scheme is a new one to me: the last word of every line in one stanza rhymes. Every stanza is arranged according to this plan no mat- ter how many lines to a stanza. "Serenity" presents a number of word pictures that are very beautiful: "the smiling sea", the "bee", the "dreamy fields". the "flowers", the "barques", "that far row of trees", and the "dreaming lovers". Outstanding is the following stanza: "The barques drift slow, And, dreaming, melt away Where golden glow Consoles the death of day." The peacefulness of these lines imprints. through their very simplicity, a lingering image. But the author's real point in the poem is summed up in the final, brief line: "Serenity is God!" The device word used is extremely clever. for in contrast to the author's beautiful. descriptive passages, a simple little sentence ends the poem. I have always felt that poets seemed to be subject to strong moods, and Gals- worthy proves to be far from an excep- tion. After reading a number of his poems that portrayed a light, cheerful mood. I came upon a four-lined poem which bore all the earmarks of having been written in Page One Hundred and Thing-six an exceedingly fearful mood. The poem that I have in mind is "Nightmare". The writer's fear of "dropping out of the race" is very apparent. The nervous question Qwas he the man who "fell in the heat" as "out of the race he ran"?j seems to make the poem's title most fitting, for isn't it a nightmare to think of not being able to do what is nearest one's heart? In Galsworthy's case, of course, it is the fear of not being able to write. We glimpse Galsworthy from another angle through a bit of his art in "Slum Cry", that is, his zeal for reform. Though there is no distinct rhyming scheme in the poem, the effect produced is at once over- powering. Strength or force is gained by the direct plea ful of the desolate"J from a child of the slums, who though- "Breath choked, dry-eyed- Death of me staring," must live her life for, "--so was I born!" "-so shall -I die!" Again this noble author utters a plea to bestow honor where it is due in "On a Soldier's Funeral." A funeral that the private soldier tat whose death no drums are beat and no bells are rungl is not given. is described. The author contrasts this brilliant description by the simple but clear stanza: "I-Ie lived his time And little day of silent tasks And silent duty-no one asks To know his name." It is very evident that the poem, "Let", was prompted by the thoughts at seeing a sign, "To Let", outside a little brick house. The description is effective and pleasing, and the rhyming plan, which is merely the rhyming of alternate lines, is unadorned to fit the peaceful simplicity of the atmosphere. In "A Mood," which is in reality a description of love, devotion is character- ized as a light, airy, untouchable some- thing. The last stanza shows my point: NINETEEN THIRTYTHREE
