Morning Songs and other Poems. By Eiluned Lewis. (Macmillan. 4s.)

Miss EILUNED LEWIS, author of Dew on the Grass and The Captain's Wife, has now published a book of poems. In the first half of the book are songs of a young mother to her child written freshly and simply; in the second half are verses of a more general nature—memories of Wales and of childhood, records of the events of to-day. Miss Lewis obviously finds the writing' of these verses a natural outlet for the observations and emotions of daily life. They have, an unforced ease ; they are pleasant, happy poems and make pleasant, happy reading.
