Review of the book Yesterdays by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Ella was a popular poet rather than a literary poet, in her poems she expresses her sentiments in plainly written, rhyming verse.This 1910 edition of over a hundred of the early poetry of the poet's youth has a reflective aura about them summed up by her forward therto in her words 'how fleeting the sorrows of youth, how slight the foundations on which the young build towers of despair'. Often our early poetry can seem that way upon reflection, from life's perspective.I especially liked 'Best' and the rondeau kyrielle style of 'eGood Night'; 'I wonder why'; and ' As we look back' and the beauty of her 'A Man's Reverie'; and her wistful writing in 'A Crushed Leaf';'Reminders' and 'Only a Glove'.
This little volume might be called 'Echoes from the land of youthful imaginings'; or 'Ghosts of old dreams.' It has been compiled at the reqeust of Messrs. Gay and Hancock (my only authorised publishers in Great Britain), and contains verses written in my early youth, and which never before (with the exception, perhaps, of three or four) have been placed in book form.
Given the poetical temperament, and a lonely environment, with few distractions, youthful imagination is sure to express itself in mournful wails and despairing moans. such wails and moans will be found to excess in this little book, and will serve to show better than any amount of common-sense reasoning, how fleeting are the sorrows of youth, and how slight the foundation on which the young build towers of despair.
In the days when these verses were written, each little song represented a few dollars (to my emaciated purse), and so the slightest experience of my own, or of any friend, with every passing mood, every trivial happening, was utilized by my imaginative and thrifty muse.
