A CEEDITAELE ANALTJS.
We publish the flowing essay by
. Donald Richardson, of this county,
now attending the Presbyterian High
chool In Columbia. It is a very c
ieditable analysis of Longfellow'S I
auous poem: a
When one to whom we are very r
much attached is taken from us, there m
Is, invariably, left in our lives a void, I
which only time can fill, and which C
time itself 1oo often fails to effectually t
It was thus with Longfellow; his t
child, who was, no doubt, dearer than
anyone else, hiving died, it was only i
natural for him to give expression to (
his eomingled emotions of love, grief I
and sadnesi. This he did in his poem
esignatIon," the sentiment and Ian
guage of which Is simple and earnest,
Sowing directly from his grief-stricken
In the first two verses of this poemj
the purpose -of Longfellow is to show
forth the 'inevitableness of death,
hich must-come alike to all. There 1
Is no fireside, he says, but has a vacant I
chair, and no Sock, however watohed
nd defended, but has one dead lamb.
In bringnf out this idea, he does not
onine himself strictly to the literal,
bat makes the fact altthe more forci
ble by judicious exageration.
Longfellow, as a man, was sympa
thetically human, and on account of
the loss ot his child was, we may well
suppose, sad and despondent. He no
doubt felt "the air full of farewells to
the dying" and his heart went out to
the lst little one.
By nature he was gentle, affectionate
and sympathetic, easily touched by
sorrow and pain; thus he was made
all the more susceptible to feelings of
sadness and depression when hisJloved
oue was taken from him. Bat in it all
he resegnizes the fact, and expresses
It in the most beautiful yet simple
language, that our afflictions are fr-om
God; and that sometimes those which
strike us birdes: are but celestial
blessings in this dark disguise. There
:fore, we shiould exercise patience, see
ing that our iueverest trials may be for
our own personal good.
IHe says that we se only dimly
through allthe earthly mists and
vapors which surround us, and fe
quently are -not able to understand
ow what -seem to us to be "funeral
tpers" often may be the "distant
lampsn of heaven."
He exprsses his belief in imamor
tahty and saVs that there is no death,
but simply ~i~ transition: and that this
..o..al ezlse is but a suburb of
that life elysian and leath but the or
trance from the one ' the other.
