    selection of the best and most familiar poetry any country has produced is I conceive a desirable as well as pleasing object and to make a selection of the verse in many cases very scattered of a young country which has hitherto produced no really great poet and whose poetry in many cases has not extended beyond mediocrity is I think not only desirable but essential The present volume is therefore an attempt to collect and arrange such The object has been to make a selection from a selection in short to give as far as material would allow true and faithful specimens of the best which our poetical writers have hitherto given us Such a selection which I trust will merit the name of a Treasury does I hope no injustice to the authors who have already published their poems in book form on the contrary I hope that it may tend to popularize their works still more by directing more attention to them and thereby stimulating a desire to possess complete editions It also fulfils the useful purpose of saving perhaps from oblivion some gem or worthy song which would otherwise lie forgotten in dry as dust pages of old Cape magazines or journals It is hoped that a selection like this will have the desirable effect of stimulating and fostering the too latent taste in the young colonial mind for the best in poetry which his country has hitherto produced or may ultimately produce Certain it is that no country should oftener pause in its ardent materialistic pursuits to find in poetry that relief and support in its strenuous life than South Africa We cannot be too often reminded of Matthew Arnold s assurance that more and more mankind will discover that we have to turn to poetry to interpret life for us to console us to sustain us That is a duty ore owe to ourselves True South African poetry at present may not be able to satisfy this demand in its entirety The breath and finer spirit are often wanting but the light that never was on land or sea the poet s dream has been felt and is striving for utterance Whether the voice will be a lasting one depends largely upon the demand made by the people They have consciously or unconsciously the destiny of the poetry of the future in their hands Given sympathy and a high standard demanded the poet s lyre will respond ignored stifled the result will be silence possibly death and the loss South African Then again it is felt that there is a large and growing field of readers across the water who interested probably by ties of kinship would welcome a volume of verse resonant of the voices and sentiments of those living under Southern skies To them such a selection as the present one may prove both interesting and valuable It would be interesting by reason of reflecting what I might term the local colour

    mention that my first intention was to admit passages from our ancient Bards alone but as I went on familiar lines from a favourite author of later date recurred to my memory which were so beautiful and appropriate that I found myself almost compelled to make an exception in favour of Shelley Some few of my extract gleanings are necessarily familiar ones but I believe a far greater number are not generally known Among my own metrical illustrations are one or two short poems from a volume published by Mr Tilt a few months ago 1 I trust to be forgiven for their insertion here they having been originally written for the present work which I have had in contemplation several years My first drawings and selections of poetry were made for it some time before the appearance of any of the now numerous publications on like subjects though I have no doubt that some recent works will be supposed to have suggested the plan of this volume I can however honestly say that such an opinion if formed will be altogether erroneous as my immediate friends and other persons are well aware moreover the entire design and arrangement of the present publication are essentially different from that of any contemporary work on Flowers Of the Plates on which authors usually compliment the artists I can say nothing but that they have been carefully engraved after my own drawings which drawings were invariably made from Nature I have never been guilty of curving a stem on my paper which I found growing straight in the field or of magnifying a flower for the sake of gay effect My models always appear to me too perfect in their beauty for me to dream of doing aught but attempt to copy faithfully as I can their various forms and colours invention here must be positive error and I anxiously strive to avoid that fault however I may sin against the laws of picturesque effect or elegant arrangement That much more might be said on a subject so fertile as that implied in the title of my work I am well aware that many would have performed my assumed task far better than I have done is also most true still I trust to the good feeling of my readers to appreciate my desire to amuse and if possible to benefit them the evidence of my failure or success remains to be given ADVERTISEMENT TO THE SECOND EDITION They tell me gentle Reader that I must either write a new Preface or add to the present one on this pleasant occasion of The Flower Seasons Illusstrated reaching a second edition Ill would it be become a favoured writer to be uncourteous to her generous patrons and I therefore gladly accede to the demand But the feelings expressed in my former prefatory remarks would inevitably be repeated in a second essay and they shall therefore remain as before then what have I to say
