5. A QUESTION.

 

The critic writes: "Our art appears to me
Quite weak and wheezy in its aged distress.
Where can our epoch's youthful spirit be?
Who'll chant of spring in poems that possess
The sap of spring? Who from the grave will free
Youth, strength, with wondrous verses for their dress?"
He wrote. And rubbing both his hands with glee
He squinted at his own book, in the press.
