A short local news Item appearing
about tho advent of a book of such
pretentious size and mechanical con
struction br tho abovo entitled volumo
Is cannot do justlco to tho autnor ono
way or the other.
In tho first place, ns to the exter
nals. A plainly bound book In russet
cloth boards, with 115 pages of beau
tiful typoRraphy, It Is found to be sub
divided Into five departments, viz.:
Hawaiian Poems, California Poems,
Lovo and Sentiment, Miscellaneous
Poems. Ilellclous Poema. With head
and side running titles of black letter
toxt tho pages are enhanced in at
travtivencss. It Is a volume, then,
externally attractive, a fact that places
upon tho soul contents tho burden of
proof of being worthy of such comely
Tho present writer comes to the ex
amination of tho literary merits of the
work with tlie prejudgment that Mr.
McMahon can wrlto poetry, this from
an acquaintance with somo of his fu
gitive contributions to the press of tho
Hawaiian Islands. A glanco through
tho book is rewardod with Bcvcral con
firmations of this opinion, whlojt a
more thorough search would probably
IncrcaBo In number. Let It servo the
present purpose to point out a few of
the discovered merits and demorlts.
The" opening poem In tho first de
partment, entitled "Hawaii," Is meas
urably truo In Us Imagery, but for a
"best foot forward" Us technical con
struction might have been tho better
of more polishing. "Streaming from
those silvery orbs above," In tho first
stanza docs not scan well, nnd then
are other lines almost equally faulty.
Tho last stanza Is the best;
"Land of sparkling seas and golden
Land of luscious fruits and fra
i grant flowers.
Where llssomo-llmbcd and black
eyed dusky maidens
Bcgullo with song and dance tho
Fain would I revel In your vernal
Mid sights and sounds I worship
Dreaming at peace and lovo nnd
things of gladness
Till life on earth for me shall be
In singing the charms of a young
maiden. In a poem on a "Hawaiian
wild Flower, tho syntax Is certainly
awry In this half of a stanza:
"Her manner Is courteous, gracious
Her voice, llko tho nightingale's.
tnruis wiin acugnt
As ho' sings to tho stars that are
Whilst sleeps tho still earth on
tho bosom of night."
"To a pretty hapa-l.aolo" (page 10)
Is a neat satire, but It would apply to
n vnln coquette of any country. "The
Sassy I.lttlo Hawaiian Girl" Is a. tell
ing sketch of real life, yet, as In other
like cases. It cannot bo appreciate!!
by ono Ignorant of all Hawaiian
phrases. A glossary or nt leaBt foot
notes would havo avoided tnlB defect,
which spoils a rattling good lovo song
further on, "Aloha, Kuu Aloha, Alo
ha." Tbcro Is lively description In "Tho
Sea." written on leaving Honolulu, but
ono or two lines would Btnnrt remodel
ing with advantage. The waves aro
represented bb grown utisky with
"loud shouting" and four lines ahead
tho "loml-Bhoutlng waves" are leap
ing and playing, whllo a littlo farther
along tho "reckless waves" nave a
"weird, witching song." All this Is
working tho shout too hard, besides
being a trltlo inconsistent. Tho pres
ent writer thinks ho has Bettled it in
oxpcrlcnco that tho wind nnd not tho
Wftvo Is tho shouter at sea. Thero Is
faulty construction, again, in these
"Vet tho mind tires at length of thf)
And tho rhttrms that once ravished
no longer they nlense.
And It turns tq the life that Is bound
ing nnd free,
To tho winds nnd tho spray of the
deep, singing sea."
Thero Is tho doubling of tho Biihject
by tho Intervention of the pronoun
"they," ami tho third Inst lino should
begin with "Kor" both for sense nnd
ouphnny. it Is a pnronthctlcnl clause
nnd not nn extension of tho predicate.
"Tim Leaving of tho Lopors" is
road In vnln to find any rational mo
tive for its production, much less pub
lication. It Is not poetic, but a pio!
sale description of grnesomo fncts
In rhyme. Tho great redeem
Ing feature of the painful scenes the
humane Intervention of authority lo
save a neoulo from tho scourge and
to mitigate tho sufferings of tho strick
enIs left out.
Tho California poems contain many
vivid touches of tho heart of nature
and the soul of old-time remains of
human Interest. Thero arc weak spots
in mo prosody, such as:
"Thy laider It Is teeming
With choicest vines and wealth,
And thy soft PaclBc breezes
(llvo sparkling ltfo and health."
Also the following, whero "And"
ehould be "Or" and tho two questions
"Tho glory of thy sunsets
What pen can e'er portray?
And tho beauty of thy daughters,
Moro ravishing than they?"
The ohVlous idea bolnc that the
glory of tho sunsets Is difficult to de
scribe, ns well as tho moro ravishing
beauty of the daughters of California.
rnc other departments of the book
aro in keeping with the examples giv
en above, in containing a good deal
that Is meritorious both In letter and
spirit. "For your heart it was large,"
stumbled over In a random turning of
tho leaves. Is bad, like lines of similar
structure already quoted. Tho Judg
raent or tho nverage reader would
probably be that the tonlcal verses
are the most disappointing of all.
Everything about Hawaii has an erot
ic alpha and omega, suggesting a sus
picion 'that the author was Btralnlng
to outvlo tho creator of Poams of Pas
sion. Thero Is salvation for tho work
as a whole, however, In such poems ns
ino I'laclil Hour of Worshln." and
that here reprlnte.1 in full, entitled
The sweetest Song of All":
The world said to a singer: "Sing mo
jour sweetest song.
Give, mo tho grandest melody that doth
to llto belong:
You've sung of hopes and longings, of
joy and misery.
lint I must have a grander song than
all of these from theo,
Tho weary singer faltered, "Oh, whal
can I sing moro?
I've sung you heartfelt melodies a
thousand times before."
Then a blissful thought camo to him,
like a voice from heaven above.
And ho sang the sweetest song of all,
the mystic song of lovo.
Incn tho world in wonder listened to
tho singer's raptured lay.
And banished was all sorrow, and
night Bccmed bright as day.
And heavy hearts woro lightened that
had mourned throughout tho
'ii'ViiftiT i itr'Afc'-sMfllri
And listless eyes were brightened, nnd
smiled through happy tears.
Then tho singer's voice grow stronger,
and louder still It rnng.
And peace camo to his hearers tho
while he blithely sang; I
iiiu uny was mi?u wiin music, wiucn
held men s souls In thrall.
And tho world bowed down and wor
shiped the sweetest song of nil!
