not expected that any one reader will prize all the poems here brought together; if each finds what he looks for, no one need be offended because the volume also includes some which he could have spared.
Thanks are due to living writers represented, for permission to use their poems. In but one instance was this refused, -though in two or three cases their address could not be obtained.
The poems are arranged nearly, if not exactly, in chronological order. Where any special history attaches to them, it will generally be found in the Notes at the end of the book.
