TENNYSON'S NEW IDYLL
'.TUE LAST TOCJIXAMEXT."
Some Appetizing K.xtiacts from the Lat?
est Poem ol" i lu Laureate.
The announcement o? a new poem of a thou?
sand linc3 by Tennyson, stirs the pulse all the
more that the poem if sell is l<? come immedi?
ately upon the announcement. It la an unex?
pected pleasure, a something n??t hoped for. a
gratification which is not. to tease us with de
I lay and is heralded by no flourish of trumpets.
'.The Last Tournament" is another Arthurian
Idyll of the same warp and woof with the mag?
nificent tapestries of the aire of knighlly ro?
mance already woven by Tennyson. The
poem la Bubdned-almost sombre- in col?
oring anil tone. The wail ot November
winds is hi every line. The hero Is Slr
Tristram, one of the younger knights of
*?ftc Hound Table, in whom lhe growing moral
degeneracy of the lime dims the glory of mar?
tial deeds. Ile is the lover of Queen bolt, of
Hrltain, wbois wedded to Hie brutish and be?
sotted Mark. At the conclusion ol" the last
tournament In which Hie Knights ol the liouud
Table engage. Slr Tristram, victor in all the
Jousts, rides lorth to visit bolt, who has been
immured by lier jealous lord In the lonely cas?
tle ol'Tintagil. .Since he saw her last hellas
married a namesake ol the Queen-the fair,
white-haired Isolt, ol' Brittany, whom he does
not love; and as he rides, his mind 13 vexed
with devising how lo smooth lt over to one he
loves as well ns his shallow nature can love.
To please her and show lils devotion, he car?
ried Hie rich prize ol' the tournament to hang
about her neck.
The meeting is beautifully described :
Then pressing day by day thro' Lyonesse
Last iu a rocky hollow, belling, heard
The hounds or Mark, and felt the goodly hounds
Yelp at Ins hem. but turning, past and gained
Tlntagil, hair ia sea, and high on land,
A crown or towers.
Down in a ca'cment sat,
A low sea-sunset glorying round her hair
Aud glo?sy-throatt d grace Isolt the Queen.
And when she heard the reel or Tristram grind
Thc Bpiriug stone that scaled about her tower.
Flushed, started, met him at the doors, and there
Belted his body with her white embrace.
Crying aloud "Not Mark-not Mark, my soul :
The foots ep fluttered me at first: not he;
fat-like thro' his own casu* steals my ?ark.
But, warrior-wise, thoa sir dest through his halls
Who hates thee, as I him-ev'n to the death.
My soul, I reit my hatred for my Mark
Quicken within me, and knew that thou wert
?o whom Slr Tristram smi lng, "I am here,
et be thy Mark, seeing he ls not thine,"
And drawing somewhat backward 9he replied.
"Can he be wrong'd who la uot ev'n his own,
But s ve for dread of thee had beaten mc.
Scratch'd. bitten, blinded, marr'd me somehow
What rights are bis that dare uot strike for them''
Not lift a hand-not, tho' he round inc thoa :
But hearken, have y? met him r hence he w. nt
Tc-dav ror three days'. Miling-as he taid
And BO returns belike wltiiln an hour.
Mark's way. my soul!-bur eat not thou with him.
Becaus?. he ha>ea thee even more than rear*;
Nor driiu"; and when thou passest auy wood
Close visor, lest an a row frnm the bush
Should leave itieall alone with Mark mid hell.
My Cod, the measure ?>r my hntc for Murk,
ls as Hie measure ol my love for Thee."'
?So, placard one way by hate and one hy love,
Drain'd of lier force, nguiu she sat, and spake
To 'l ri.-11 am, as he knelt before her, saj mg,
"O hunter, and O blower ol i lie horn.
Hamer, and thoa hast been a rover fem,
For, ere 1 mated with my Shambling king,
Ye twi.iti had rallen out about thc brute
or one-his name ls out or nie-thc priz'\
ir prize sue were- (what marve:-she could s-^e)
Thine, friend; ami ever since nw oravi II seeks
To wreck thee villainously; but, O Slr Knight,
What dame or damsel have yo kueeied io last f
Sir Ti ?strain equivocated, and Queen Isolt,
saddening at his weakness, cries om:
"1 had rorgottcu all lu my strong j >y
To see thee-yearnings --aye ' tor, nour by hour,
Here in . lie never-ended afternouo,
O sweeter thau all memories of thee.
Deeper i lian any yearnings after thee
Seem M those far-rolling, westward-<-iulliiig seas.
Watched rrom this tower. Ison of Britain daah'd
Before Isolt of Hrittany ou I he strand.
Would that have chnlM her bikle-klitt ? Wedded
Fought lu her ratliei's battles ! wounded there?
The King was all lultlil'd with graininess,
And she. my namesake or the hands, that nea.M
sthy hurt and heart with unguent and caress
Well-can 1 wish her auy huger wrong
Thau having known thee Y lier too hast thou left
To pine au<I was-e In those sweet memories 1
o Mere I uot my Mark's, by whom ail meu
Are noble, 1 should hutu thee more than love."
And Tristram, fondling her light hands, replied,
' Crace, Queen, lor being lovett: alie loved mc
Did I love her ? The name at least I loved.
isolt ?-1 fought his battles, for Isolt !
The night was dark; tue true star set !-Isolt !
The name was ruler or the dark-Isolt !
care uot ror lier ! patieut ami praycirtd, meek",
Tale-blooded, she will yield herseir to Cod."
And Isolt answered: "Yea, and why not Ir
Mine is the larger need, who am not meek,
1'ale-blooded, prayerrul. Let me tell thee now.
Here one black, mute midsummer night I sate
Lonely, but inusiug on thee, wondering where,
Murmuring a light song. 1 had heard thee sing,
And once or twice 1 spake my name aloud.
Then ilash'd a ieviu-braud; and near me stood,
Ju runilug sulphur blue aud green, a tiend
Mark's way to steal behind ono in the dark
Fort here was Mark: 'Delias wedded her,' lie
Not said, but hls3\l it; then this crown or towers
So shook to such a roar or ail the sky.
That here m utter daik I swoon'tl away.
And woke nguiu in utter darn, and cried,
'1 will dee hence and give my self to Hud,'
And thou wert lyiug iii thy new Ionian's anns."
Slr Tristram becoming a little weary of her
' reproaches and sad mood, remembers the
* jewels he had brought to adorn lier willi, ami
while she was still speaking, and letting
-one linger lightly touch
The warm white apple or her throat, replied,
"Press this a little closer, sweet, until
Come, I am hunger'd und hair anget'il-meat,
Wine, wine-and I win love j hoe to the death.
And out fe youd into the dream to come."
soti:en, when both were brought to full accord,
She rose, and set heron- lum all lie will'd;
And after these bad comforted the blood
SV'ltli meals.ind wines, and satiated their hearts
Now talking Ol their woodland paradise.
The ilrer.ihe dows, thc fern, the ronnts.tlic lawns;
Now mocking ut the much ungainliness,
And craven shifts, anti long crane legs of Mark
Then Tristram laughing caught the harp, and
'Ay. a,. o av-the winds t hat bond the brier !
A star in heaven, a star within the mere '
.Ay, ay. O ay-a Mar was my desire;
And one was far apart, anil one was near;
Ay, ay. O ay-the winds that bow titv grass '
And ono was water aud ouc star was ure.
And oue will ever shine ami (die will pass -
Ay, ay, O ay-thc winds that more the mere."
Then in Hie light'* last glimmer Tristram siiowM
And bwung the lui y carcanet. She c ted,
"The collar ot some order, which our King
Hath uewiy rounded, all ror I hoe, my soul.
For thee, to yield thee grace bayoud thy poors."
"Not so, my Un .cn," he saul, "hut thc roil fruit

And won by ti 1st nun as a tourney-prize.
Ami huber brought by Tristram, for lus last.
Love-offering ano peave-orfcrUig unto nae."
He rose, he turned, and lunging round lier nock.
Clasped it; but Wilily he IMIW'II himself io lay
Warm kisses in the hollow of her tilt oat.
Out >f the dat K, just as the Upi hail loucliM,
