S TO R Y A N D V E R S E 115 SUMMER VACATION By Barbara Bruton I ' erhaps ' twill start you dreaming bile working in study hall. Or it can come at evening When you hear your homework call. It came to me today, worse luck. When my brain was at its best. I could not think and my mind turned blank, In the middle of a Latin test. Even at home on quiet school nights. With homework scattered all about, I think of a dip in the briny deep Or a mountain streamlet filled with trout. And I wonder on in jumbled thoughts Until at last I can visualize Myself on a horse, in the cool of eve Underneath the starry skies. Dreaming away, I forgot the books That I know I need for class. So my teachers say if 1 don ' t perk up They ' re afraid I will not pass. But who on earth can concentrate With a mind in such confusion? ALONE Anon Dedicated to 11. E. M. loiie ? Yes. quite alone. Alone with God and I lis everlasting peace. )li, just to be able to See the sun go down behind The rugged hills, to see God ' s colors form from The heavens. To think one ' s thoughts alone. To breathe ( iod ' s breath, And to clear one ' s mind, alone.

114 T II E A RT 1 S A N S ' 3 6 DAWN AND SUNSET By Selma E. Moidel Dawn and t he world awakens From its peaceful slumber. The pinkish hues of the morning sun Are tinting the hills and valleys. What can this new day brin ? Perhaps a smile, perhaps a tear. Hut always inspiration ! As it turns a page in the book of life It turns our hearts once more To the God of Eternal Hope — Dawn ! Sunset — the darkness has triumphed And the world returns to its slumber. But o ' er the distant hills and valleys Spreads a blanket of flame and gold, The last adieu of a dying day. Reluctantly it falls from view With one brief pause as if to say, " ' A day has passed — a day well done What matters if there was a tear? There ' s always inspiration ? " As it turns a page in the Book ol Life So turn our hearts once more To the ( rod of Peace, and Rest, and Memory — Sunset ! NOCTURNE By Gail Martin Majestically she passed With every sail set Undaunted by the waves that broke Against her plunging prow. She was an old ship Of such massive beauty Yet such queenly grace She seemed a very dream ship That must vanish with the dawn.

116 THE ARTISANS ' 36 PADEREWSKI— MUSICAN, PRIME MINISTER Uv Virginia Merrill [gnace Jan Paderewski started out in life witli two great visions. He saw himself as a great composer. But being a Pole, he also saw himself as the savior of Poland — every young Pole of his country did. In his case the two visions united in the dream of saving Poland by his music. During the century of their bondage, from 1815 to 1915, the men of Poland throve on the legend of their country ' s marthyrdom. When the war broke out Poles all over the world (especially American) were gripped by a feverish hope: the hour for whose advent they had prayed for a century, struck at last. In 1914 Paderewski, wealthy, successful, and happy was living in bis idyllic retreat on Lake Leman, Switzerland. But Ignace, the great patriot, started in 1915, at Geneva, a relief fund for his countrymen. I le contribu- ted his money, his time, bis art, bis sleep, his health to the cause. Then he came to America. His arrival in America virtually marked the end of his career as an artist, and the beginning of his career as a statesman. At the end of the war the White Eagle of Poland was soaring high again on the day when the Black Eagle of Prussia was smitten dead. Once more there was a government at Warsaw; once more there was a Polish army. When Paderewski arrived in Poland, successful, be was made a Prime Minister. He endured the hopeless muddle of Polish politics for a year — he sacrificed the last remnants of his wealth, bis nervous energy, bis hopes. Then he resigned in 1919. Beginning all over again, he once more became the world ' s greatest artist. He still wants to be rich in order to serve an ideal — he wants to aid bis beloved Poland. In the spring of 1936, Ignace Jan Paderewski consented to broad- cast, by radio, his great ability as a pianist to millions. For a moment his art conquered the world, and after he has passed on he will be remembered by a minuet.
