Again in tlio hotly of Uio work:
"My own dim life should teach mo thli,
That lifo shall live forovcrmorc,
Kl?e earth N darknci at tlie tore
And dust and allies all tliat Is."
"In Momorinin" wns not published
until sovonteon years aftor Unllnm's
(loath, anil in tho iutoriin appeared
tho "English Idyls," "Locksloy Hall"
with its bitlor arraignment of a wo
man's inconstancy, tho jilted lover's
despair and iinal triumph:
"1 am shamed through all my
nature to have loved so slight a
"Godiva," with a wealth of poetic
imagery that recalls Keats' "luve of
"Sho lingered, looking llko a Kitmmor moon
Halt-dint In cloud :"
"And like1 a crcoplni: suiilii'mn, slid
Krom pillar unto nlllur;"
Tlio "Day Dream," containing
enough jeweled rhymes to gem tho
crowns of a wholo race of poet kings,
and tho courtship of tho Lord of
Burleigh and tho village niaidon,
with its pathetic conclusion that has
boat in time to manv a random chord
of grief since it was written, and,
what has always scorned to mo to bo
tho mnstorpieco of that edition
"Tho Two Voices." In this poem
ono voice counsels suicide as a relief
for physical ills:
"Consider well," the voice replied,
"Hi faeo that two hours -diice 1 1 tit 1 1 died;
Vilt thou find passion, pain, or pride?"
"It all ho dark, vuguo voice," 1 said,
These tilings are wrapt in doubt and dread,
jYor canit thou jioic the thatl are dciid!"
"Whatever crazy sorrow salth,
No lifo that breathes with human breath
Has ovor truly longed for deatli.
'Tis life, whereof our nerves are scant,
O life not death for which we pant;
More life, and fuller, that I want."
In spito of tho difficulties attend
ing tho triple rhymo stanza there is
not a forced or labored lino in tho
poem, subtle and logical as it is, and
the conclusion bears such a grand
messago of hope, that every man
whoso sun of lifo has boon clouded
ovor, should read it in order that ho
may learn to patiently "await tho
In 1817 "Tho Prineoss" gained him
fresh laurels, and tho popularity of
that work has in no wise diminished
at tho present timo. Something
may bo found in it to suit every
mood, and every age, from a cradle
lullaby to a sonorous bugle song,
from tho dalliance of lovers in tho
narrative portion to tho sibilant
speech of war-women.
In 1851 Tonnysoii married Emily
Sollwood (who still survives) ciud
took up his residence on tho Islo of

rings the death knoll for gonitis. Bo
this as it may, "Aland," which was
the first work published after his
marriage, marked a distinct retro
gression. Road without tho connect
ing btanzas that have been sineo
added it was about as disjointed a
piece of work as was over written,
tho Garden Song being its only re
deeming feature. In the same
toliimo appeared tlio "Charge of the
Light Brigade," familiar to every
school boy, yet inferior in descrip
tive power to Moek's grand and
dramatic poom on "Balaklava," or
oven Whyte-Molvillo's stirring prose
recital detailing that mad gallop of
Lucan's little band of heroes across
the lire-swept glacis and into that
gorge of death whoro nearly half
their number went down befoio tho
fatal fire of tho Russian guns.
But tho misogamists who had pre
dicted tho sotting of tho Tonny
bouian pootic bun had thoir pro
phecies laughed to scorn after tho
"Idyls of tho King" silenced tlio
critics of two worlds, and his suc
ceeding works proved how happily
domestic lifo nourished his talent.
Of tho two sons of this union theio

T. H. Reunion in an article on
Tennyson in 18811 says that ho was
apt "to sit on a stile and remark a
colt's points; to take a languid inte
rest in turnips and crop rotation;
and to have a proper interchange of
courtesies with suspected poachers
on tho subject of wood-craft, or with
protty fanner's daughters touching
thoir swains." All of which shows
tho grand catholicity of tho immor
Tennyson has not scrupled to ap
propriate several passages from
Homer, yet tho charge of plagiarism
must bo mndo with caution, for both
Lucretius and Dauto havo also bor

of tho iEgtuan, and oven tho "divine
"Will" did not disdain to lilch an idea
or two from Palludas, as witness the
following from tho muso of that
"Tills life a theatre wo well may call,
'here every actor must perform w Ith art.
Or laugh it through and make n farcu of all
Or learn to bear with grace his tragic part."
And thoso who criticize him for
purloining tho Falcon from Bocca
cio should romomber that the tale
was common in Arabia long before
tho author of tho Decammeron was
born; only, iii tho Arabian legend it
was a favorite horse which fell a
sacrifice and was served as a ropast
for tho Byzantine monarch, instead
of a raro falcon trussed for u lady
Probably more of his pooms called
forth bucIi a storm of adverse criti
cism as "Locksloy Hall Sixty Years
Lator," But tho caroloss and casual
reader should not forgot that tho
first Locksloy Hall was written at
the optimistic ago of 83; that in
youth wo aro all prono to tint tho
future with hues of hope; that the
optimist of HO is a pessimist at (it).

Such is tho cry of tho world. Our
mince of poets is doad and Swin
burne is to succeed him. IIo is
"our poet" no longer. Already ho
scorns to belong to tho past. Ho
has "gone down to the eternnl pro
miscuity of tho dust," but, through
all tho chances ami changes of time,
the heirs of the ages shall hear his
clear voice ringing pure and true
above "tho wreck of matter and tho
crash of worlds," as sweet toned and
strong as when in tho heyday of life
"I will not ui, 'Ood's ordinance
Of deatli Is hiow u on every wind;' "

That takes away n noble mind.

In nil our hearts as mournful light
That broods above the fallen sun
And dwells in heaven half tho night."
