WAIT FOR ME!
Once, about that time when I had reached the
advanced age of twelve, I lay on a couch watch-
ing a cloudy sky pour forth bucketsful of silver
rain, watching a delicate green branch sway to
and fro, making an arch against the angry heav-
ens. I was listening to a radio program. As I
listened, before me opened vistas of beauty and
within my heart stirred the beginnings of a life-
long resolution. I knew then that the world was
full of beauty wrought by man and God, and
that I should find it, see it, hear it, feel it, or die
with a craving unsatisfied.
The desire that was born then has grown. It has
been fed on vivid pictures and glowing descrip-
tion, it has been nourished on music and drama
that whispered of strange and fascinating things,
it has been whipped to a consuming flame by the
tantalizing fear that Destiny may snatch away the
wonders of which I have dreamed.
I am afraid of war-are the treasures of the ages
to be lost because men quarrel? I am afraid of
the blustering egotism of one man-will he dare
to say the word that would shatter the rose win-
dow or the statue of Moses into a million pre-
cious fragments, each to be thrice wept over?
I am afraid of automatons that used to be men-
will their tramping feet defile the places where
beauty is held sacred, will their brute hands tear
asunder canvas and parchment alike? Men's
souls are greater than these, you say, but I
reply: They were fashioned, bit by bit, from the
overflow of men's souls and are, therefore, price-
Nations fall into ruin, crowns crumble' into
dust, but the music which knows no boundaries
lives on. The delicate lines of a statue, the living
features of a bust, the proud colors of a portrait
are a joy in the eyes of all men. The skill of a
surgeon, the perseverance of a scientist, the
genius of a poet are admired the world over.
Yet war would destroy knowledge and skill,
genius and art. Who possesses, then, the con-
summate audacity that would plunge the world
into darkness more profound than that of the
Middle Ages? No one but a madman, or one
who knows that he has already passed that point
beyond which it no longer matters, would.
Please, dear World, do not sacrifice your
beauty on the altar of pride, or power, or in-
sanity. I long to see all you have to offer. Wait
-Eugenia Van Buskirk
Ghost fingers of the barren trees
Creep out across the sky,
The night's gray blanket settles down,
Pinned by one star on high.
The whistling of the winter wind
Sings out a sharp refrain
And freezing ice on bending hedge
Gives beauty that brings pain.
