Excerpt from The Poetry of Peace

I have to thank Mr. Charles Williams for help, the great value of which can only be appreciated by those who are fortunate enough to be familiar with his own published poems and to acknowledge gratefully the permission of the Poet Laureate to reprint his odes, of Mr. Hardy - to include his 'sick Battle God', and of Messrs. Burns and Oates to add Francis Thompson's ode - these poems all being inspired by the peace which ended the South African War. I am indebted also to Mrs. Dixon for the sonnet by the late Canon Dixon, a poet too little known to the late Mrs. Waterhouse for the solitary poem on the franco-prussian peace and to Mr. John Murray for the Vista of J. A. Symonds.
