GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS
WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT

Evening Post, which he made the most influential newspaper in America; his summers on Long Island or back amid the scenes of his boyhood; varied by an occasional trip to Europe-these make the simple record of a life as truly great, in its way, as the life of Franklin.
Franklin's life was filled with adventure, like Roosevelt's or Admiral Peary's. But Bryant's adventures were none the less real. He was too poor to complete his college course, and he' studied law in an office. When he walked through the coun-: try to the village where he expected. to practice law, he was. filled with doubt as to his future. Suddenly he saw a waterfowl, and wondered whence it had come and whither it was going, flying high and alone through the soft evening air. And as the youth watched, the bird was gone, and the adventure was over, except for the reflection that brought courage to the boy's heart

" He who, from zone to zone,
Guides through the boundless sky thy certain flight,
In the long way that I must tread alone
Will lead my steps aright."
There were other adventures. Once he came upon the yellow
violet
" When beechen buds begin to swell,
And woods the bluebird's warble know,
The yellow violet's modest bell
Peeps from the last year's leaves below,"

and his joy over finding this early flower made for the poet an adventure as truly as if he had discovered Aladdin's cave.
Bryant's poetry, then, is filled with stories of these adventures in the kingdom of nature. The woods were filled for him with solemn magic. To know this magic of the woods, you have no better guide than the poems of William Cullen Bryant. Hc can show you how to find adventure near at hand, adventure that is as real as if he led you to pirate ships or desert islands or enchanted caves. And after all, it is the power to find adventure in the life about us that will help to make us happy.
