A Nebraska Poet
In Harper's Weekly of January 4.
1102, appears a poem by Miss Willa
Slbert Cather, called "Arcadian Win
ter." The exquisite rhythm and the
tender memoriam for skies that look
bluer now than when they domed Ar
cady Is characteristic. The grace and
music and regret of the lines haunt
one like the. Idyls of Herrick. Miss
Cather has the light touch, the some
thing that comes after awhile to the
maturing poet who reverences litera
ture and refuses all parodies. Miss
Cather Is a Nebraska woman and a
graduate of the state university. At
present she is teaching literature In
the schools of Pittsburg, Pa., and
writes for eastern newspapers and
Woe is me to tell it thee.
Winter winds in Arcady!
Scattered is thy Hock and fled
From the glades where once it fed.
And the snow lies drifted white
In the bower of our delight.
Where the beech threw gracious shade
On the cheek of boy and maid.
And the bitter blasts make roar
Through the Ileshless sycamore.
White enchantment holds the spring.
Where thou once wert wont to sing.
And the cold hath cut to death
Reeds melodious of thy breath.
He, the rival of thy lyre,
Nightingalt with note of lire.
Sings no more; but far away.
From the windy hill-side gray.
Calls a broken note forlorn
From an aged shepherd's horn.
Still about the fire they tell
How It long ago befell
That a shepherd maid and lad
Met and trembled and were glad.
When the swift spring waters ran,
And the wind to boy or man
Brought the aching of his sires,
Song and love and all desires.
Ere the starry dogwoods fell
They were lovers, so they tell.
Woe is me to tell It thee,
Winter winds In Arcady!
Broken pipes and vows forgot.
Scattered flocks returning not,
Frozen brook and drifted hill.
Ashen sun and song-birds still.
Songs of summer and desire
Crooned about the winter fire.
Shepherd lads witli silver hair.
Shepherd maids no longer fair.
