The following essay was written1
by Marie Gaines, a pupil of the 11th
TbanatopslfT Contrasted to ?*A
Psalm of Life.**
Aa we read that beautiful poem
"ThapaCopsls" we cannot help ' bpt
Tcel some solemnity and sentiment
that Bryant had while writing it.
It teaches simply the beauties, life-,
and divinity in nature. It tells us j
Lhat we may And countless pleasures
ind gaieties In the beauties of nature.
lt also tells that nature provides a
healing power for gloomy, dark, and
sad thoughts. In "Thanatopsls" the I
story tells us to approach over grave I
with a brave and cheerful feeling, be
sauser then, we shall have a moro j
magniflclent couch than kings ever
had during their days on earth. Here,
we' all shall lie In the same bed that
kings, Joe ts, and all great mei are!
lying, all covered with the same great
mound of nature, decorated with the |
rreat hills and stones and Gie beau
tiful green inhabitants of the valley.
'Thanatopsls" seems to teach us that
we must look forward With no dis
pleasure to the Ume when we shall
he laid in the tombs to become pari
}f nature again.
Aa we read Longfellow's "Psalm of
Life" we seem to see everything full
of action and Ute, men going forth
to fight their battles of life. This
poem shows us that we have many
UM great things to achieve. Here it
ls not our achievement to sit in sor
rowful and mournful songe all the
lay long but that we must be up and
aver ready to grasp opportunities ere
they have flown into the past and
speed on to tho future by accomplish
ing Our present teaks as they come.
In this "Psalm of Ute" we are led to
be active, and to strive to achieve, and
pursue until it ls tim? for us to lie
down and rest after our successful
