Book review

Excerpt from The Hermitage and Other Poems

The Hermitage.

A life, - a common, cleanly, quiet life,
Full of good citizenship and repute,
New, but with promise of prosperity, -
A well-bred, fair, young-gentlemanly life, -
What business had a girl to bring her eyes,
And her blonde hair, and her clear, ringing voice,
And break up life, as a bell breaks a dream?
Had Love Christ's wrath, and did this life sell doves
In the world's temple, that Love scourged it forth
Beyond the gates? Within, the worshippers, -
Without, the waste, and the hill-country, where
The life, with smarting shoulders and stung heart,
Unknowing that the hand which scourged could heal,
Drave forth, blind, cursing, in despair to die,
Or work its own salvation out in fear.

Old World - old, foolish, wicked World - farewell!
