A collection of poems which cover a wide range of themes and moods, and are characterized by subtle irony and a sympathetic understanding of human nature.

Classically derived forms, the sonnet, the ballad, etc. for a second collection of shorter lyrics in which death and decay are the dominant notes. Here also are lovely ladies and cruel ones - the loss of love - the gains of time - etc. This is the work of a younger poet - rhyme rather than poetry - and lacks any genuine aesthetic quality.
