The Alpine Flowers.. SIGOURNEY 78
BARRY CORNWALL 81
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.
"R. A.” — There is not sufficient originality in the “ Ode to Knowledge.” Its thoughts are thoroughly commonplace.
“D. M. WEST, (Glasgow.)”—Thanks for the “ Brilliants;" they are such, and will be inserted. We shall be glad of more. Please to write all contributions plainly, and on one side of the paper only.
“R. J. L.”- Although “A Word of Cheer” is not quite within our scheme, we shall be glad to receive others.
" AMATOR POESIS.”—“The Last Plague” is, certainly, not beautiful. The two “ Brilliants" are wise sayings, but not poetry. Our correspondent has fallen into the very common error of mistaking a good moral sentiment in verse for good poetry.
“MIDAS” will see that we have already used some of his welcome inclosures.
“ G.,” “ JUVENIS,” “Rev. E. M.,” “ A LOVER OF Poetry,” “VIATOR."— Thanks to all for the contributions forwarded. Many of them will have a place.
“A SUBSCRIBER."—We will endeavour to adopt his suggestion in future.
“A CORRESPONDENT" informs us that the poem “A Mother to her Child,” attributed to Wordsworth, was written by his sister, although published among his works, and that the “Lines to the Redbreast," of which Keble is stated to be the author, were by a friend of his.
Number IV. will be published on the 1st of March.
The success of Beautiful Poetry has far exceeded any expectation we had formed of it, and the universal approval of the selections is very gratifying.
No. II. of Wit and Humour will be published on the 1st of March.
Beautiful Poetry may be hud by order of all Booksellers, in Numbers at 3d., or Parts at 1s. It will also be sent direct from the office, stamped to pass free by post, to any person prepaying for not less than twelve nuinbers, 3s. 6d., which may be transmitted in postage stamps.
