The Midnight Mummer, and Other Poems free pdf Excerpt from The Midnight Mummer, and Other Poems One always thinks he has many things to say in his preface until he sets himself to the task. Then, he finds shockingly few things to say- especially in defense of another volume of poems Yet even near-poets are not cowards about their verses although they quake at thinking of any one else reading them: for men may see faults they themselves cannot correct. But these men furnish the stepping stones on which some very great singer may mount to an immortal stage- they hold the goal flags beyond which he must go if he is really to say the imperishable thing: and hence may be forgiven all their imperfections. For the spirit whose breath they speed is God's greatest gift to men. What could He plan better for us than the goodly boon of a great man? And to that man, what message could he impart better than a great thought? And, for that thought, what excellence could He desire higher than a great form? And, of great forms of expression of thought, what will compare with the gentle rhythm of musical words? That is why we cherish our poets as well as laugh at their counterfeits. We refuse to let them die. At the head of every national literature we place one of them as premier of all in the fine art of immortalizing thought. So even the near-poet has his uses and, for the sake of the music he hastens, may ask forgiveness for all his discords. The lute is not broken- it awaits the breath of a master- the master who has his own hour for making music that must last.
