This work is designed to form a collection of the choicest Poetry in the English language. Nothing but what is really good will be admitted. No original poetry will find a place.
A portion of it will be hereafter devoted to The Poetry of Travel, which will be paged so as to form a separate volume for the use of travellers, containing what the Poets have sung about the localities usually visited by tourists.
The following, or some of them, will appear: "M. J. K. Rochester)," "M. F.," "C. E. K," "Ap Rhys," "L. (Hull)," "Dr. Evans," "Romeo (Manchester)," "D.W. (Glasgow)," "J. L. C," "L. G."
"Burleigh," is under consideration.
The contribution from " W. C." (Brighton), does not quite fall within the title of Beautiful Poetry.
"F. C. (Gainsborough)," informs us that he has seen the following verse as commencing the beautiful poem "On the Picture of a Blind Girl leading her Mother through a Wood," at page 47. If so, it must have been afterwards added by the author, for it is not in the first edition from which our copy was printed. This it is:
Gently, dear mother, here
Gently, and do not fear;
We shall be obliged by further contributions from "J. G. (Wingliam.)"
Part I. has been deferred in consequence of some of the Numbers being out of print. They are reprinting, and it will be ready, we hope, on the 22nd inst.
No. 6 will appear on April 1st.
No. 3 of Wit and Humour on April 1st.
THE POET'S HOUR. Dr. Cbolt is the author of these very graceful stanzas.
When day is done, and clouds are low,
And flowers are honey-dew,
Along the western blue
For in the dimness curtain'd round
He hears the echoes all
Or distant waterfall;
And still, as shakes the sudden breeze
The forest's deepening shade,
The silver serenade;
The star that peeps the leaves between
To him is but the light
Shines to her pilgrim knight;
Or, if some wandering peasant's song
Come sweeten'd on the gale,
The crosier, cross, and veil;
And thus he thinks the hour away
