THE WATER OUZEL And Other Poems

The little volume is rather an attempt than an achieved volume of poetry. The author has certain poetic intuitions, but little mastery over his medium. And his choice of pleasing subjects- The Water Ouzel, Aunt Alice in April, Cedar Wax Wing, are tenuous. It seems a pity to be sternly critical of any young poet when there is so little verse published- but this will not qualify for more than a minimal public.
